Tall “steeple” shows the height of this two-story building from 1887.

I love the attention to detail. The restoration of this place, originally a hotel, clearly is the best restoration of any 100-plus-year-old building in the San Gabriel Valley.

Below is a full view of the Walker House:

About Steve Scauzillo

I love journalism. I've been working in journalism for 32 years. I love communicating and now, that includes writing about environment, transportation and the foothill/Puente Hills communities of Hacienda Heights, Rowland Heights, Walnut and Diamond Bar. I write a couple of columns, one on fridays in Opinion and the other, The Green Way, in the main news section. Send me ideas for stories. Or comments. I was opinion page editor for 12 years so I enjoy a good opinion now and then.
