Early on, both Baptist and Methodist churches were established, and the area's Baptist church was the first permanent Baptist church in Blount County. Amerine Forge, operated by George Amerine, was the largest ironworks in Blount County from 1845 to 1860. In 1901, Schlosser Leather Company opened a tannery, making it the largest industry in the county.

Working together as authors for 12 years, Missy Tipton Green and Paulette Ledbetter rank this book among their favorite collaborations. Green and Ledbetter both have family members who have lived in the Walland area and attended the Walland School. Earl Adams donated the photographs and accompanying notes taken and collected by his late wife, Inez McCaulley Adams, for use in this book, and so did many descendants of the early Walland families.
