Walter was founded on 25 August 1767 by colonists recruited by officials of Catherine the Great's government and was therefore called a Crown Colony. The 1767 census records that Johann Peter Walter was serving as the colony's mayor (Vorsteher). It is most likely him after whom the colony received its German name. Today, what little remains of the former colony of Walter is known as Grechikhino. There are only a handful of habitable houses remaining, most built during the Soviet era, in which approximately 25 people live.
