Walker-Martin House



Before my computer woes last week I was showing a series of beautiful old homes in the Park Avenue Historic District near downtown. This is the Walker-Martin House which was built in 1896 for Newell Anders Walker and given as a wedding present from her husband Stanley May Walker, a local dry goods store owner. It later became the residence of Mr. and Mrs. George I. Martin. Mrs. Martin was the daughter of Stanley and Newell Walker. Today it is the home of a local law firm.

So grand. It's funny, though, 'cause we have a house very similar to this near downtown Ocala and it, too, is occupied by a law firm! Maybe you have to have "legal standing" to buy such a place? :))
