Cosmo L. Walker House
Built in 1932 for Cosmo L. Walker (1893–1958) and his wife, Julia Keenan Walker(1896–1972), this Tudor Revival house was designed by Greenville architect Henry R. Trott (1895–1937). It features a roofless terrace with a stone wall and iron railings across the front of the house. The stone for the house was locally acquired from Weston and Brooker Quarry in Cayce. Cosmo and his brother, Joseph Walker (1884–1983), were partners in Forest Hills Inc., the first development company in Forest Hills. A third brother, Robert B. Walker (1896–1977), lived next door at 1319 Devonshire Drive. The three brothers were founding partners of the cotton merchant firm Joseph Walker and Company.
