History - Walker Mansion, a beautiful Queen Anne Italianate of the Victorian Era was built in 1880 by famed architect, Thomas Sully, who designed many of the mansions on St. Charles Avenue during that period. The house was built for Colonel Joseph Walker, the Baron of the St Charles Railroad (now Streetcar). He was known as a "Swashbuckling Capitalist" who made his fortune in the gambling business, which was considered a less than honorable profession at that time.
