Rural Thursday - Blog Hop # 11
On Saturday morning we drove up to Schuyler, Va to visit Walton's Mountain Museum. Did you know the actual family "The Waltons" is fictional, based on the real family, The Hamners? Earl Hamner, aka: John Boy wrote a book based on his childhood, which was then made into the tv show, The Waltons. It wasn't as simple as that but that is the cliff note version.
We took a tour of the museum which I linked above which is NOT part of the house tour. The tour we took is housed in his old elementary school (and that was pretty neat!) with rooms set up like different rooms of the house from the show. The museum and owner of the house should get together and combine the tour as we were a bit confused and after paying for the museum tour we felt we didn't really need to pay to see the inside of the house now too so I just snapped a photo of it from the outside and we left and picked up some lunch! It is pretty though isn't it?!
You can read about the house here and see some pictures of what the inside looks like. I'll show more pictures from the inside of the museum in the upcoming days, aren't you excited?! haha
And it's Thursday so of course I'm linking up with Rural Thursday Blog Hop! Come along!
