I bet you didn't know that we live in the same area that the Waltons did. In fact, their house and museum are less them an hour away, up a wooded mountain trail in the small town of Schuyler, Va. At one point during the Depression, daddy Walton came to my city for a job and lived here on weekdays. We would have been neighbors. The Waltons were NOT really the Waltons. Their real name was Hamner. But The "Hamners" would not make such a great name for a T.V. show, so it was changed to Walton. So Walton's Mountain was really Hamner's Mountain. Here is the original house, and the country store beside their house, though the real store burned down and this is the newer one. But their church is original and it is just a stone's throw away from the house. There is a quarry and a dam across the road, the dam is huge and makes quite a noise. The next few posts I will show you what the inside of the house looked like! Next up is the REAL John Boy!!!
