Paul and Jacob Walter Award

The summer colony of Hickory Valley was established in 1784 by the Paul and Jacob Walter families. Seeking a healthier climate, these two brothers selected the sites where the Bethel Presbyterian Church and the Unger Property are today. Because Hickory Valley proved to be an excellent pineland village, more families came and some stayed year round.
