I went to Walton’s Mountain because my family isn’t interested in this sort of thing. As a fan, it was cool to experience the nostalgia of the Walton’s, but it was largely staged for fans. Little, if anything, was on the show. I liked looking...More

I enjoyed my visit. I'm still thinking about it! Spent about 2 hours there, reading the exhibits, admiring the full size replica rooms and watching the informational video. It made me happy and sad at the same time. Shows like the Waltons aren't written anymore....More
