Founded August 6, 1901At the opening of Kiowa-Comanche-Apache lands, the original townsite in old Comanche County was SW 1/4, T2S, R11W. The original name McKnight was rejected by the post office. The name Walter, for City Commissioner W.R. Walter, was then chosen Sept. 1901. The town of Walter incorporated Sept. 1902 and changed officially to Walters in Dec. 1904, but the post office and depot continued to use Walter until an act of Congress, June 1917 renamed them Walters.
