History: 

Walter-Khutor was founded as a khutor (farmstead) by colonists from Walter. Today is larger than its parent colony in size and population.

Walter-Khutor was located outside of the boundary of the Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic of the Volga Germans. Today this former Volga German settlement is known as Sverdlovo.

Church: 

There was a Bethaus (prayer house) located in Walter-Khutor. It was used as a school during the week and served as the church on the weekend. The building is still standing. It was restored in 1992 and serves as the community center, dance hall, and library for the town.
