“Welcome to Paradise” is how Winston and Jackie Lewis greet guests at the George Walker House. Located in the idyllically named community of only a few full-time residents, the George Walker House is certainly a paradise for the bird lovers and naturalists who flock to Southeastern Arizona.
Built around 1905, the house is one of the community’s few remaining original structures. It’s old-fashioned and comfortable, with quilts, wood stoves and a cheerful yellow kitchen that was added in the ’60s. It’s well stocked with a variety of literature, local history, nature guides and good binoculars.
The best room of the house is the screened-in porch, with its worn, painted wood and comfortable rocking chairs overlooking an array of feeders that attract a variety of birds, including the juniper titmouse, the Mexican chickadee and 13 species of hummingbirds.
