Good night Erin, good night Sally Ann !



Below you can see three interesting videos of the Waltons 45th Anniversary Reunion.





Today the celebrations for the 45th anniversary of our favorite tv show have come to an end. Earl Hamner's hometown Schuyler, Waltons Mountain, had to deal with thousands that weekend. Yesterday morning some of the fans had to stand in the line for the autograph session at the museum in Schuyler for more than 5 hours, until they could finally get to the cast for an autograph and photo. We think it was just as much going on as the opening of the museum back in 1992.

Here you can see some photos of the museum and Schuyler and the fans and cast members. By the way .... who recognizes Jon Walmsley in the photos? A huge change, but looks really good!


n loving memory of Earl Hamner,

who passed away one year ago.

We miss you so much.


Do you remember the episode with Martha Corinne and the Pony Cart (Season 5)? Well, this old pony cart still exists and has been "rediscovered" in California in an old barn. The pony cart has now been brought across the USA to the Waltons Museum in Schuyler, Virginia by the organizer of the 45th Anniversary of the Waltons Ray Castro and friends. On the occasion of the Walton Reunion at the end of March, the carriage will be exhibited, after which it will probably be shown again in October in the museum.

See here Ray Castro´s documentary about the discovery of the pony cart until it´s arrival at the Waltons museum. Very interesting!


Very sad news again:

The actor, writer, director and teacher Richard Hatch passed away peacefully yesterday, on February 7, at the age of only 71 years in Los Angeles, with his family and friends on his site.He lost a battle with pancreatic cancer.

Richard Hatch was born on May 21,1945 in Santa Monica, California. He started his career at the theater stage before he began his television career in 1970 in the TV series "All my Children". He had many guest appearances in best-known TV series and films. He was very well known as a worthy successor of Michael Douglas in the TV series "The Streets of San Francisco" beside the unforgotten Karl Malden. For this role he won the German Bravo Award. His most famous role was Captain Apollo in original Battlestar Galactica television series. For this he received a Golden Globe nomination in 1978.

To all the fans of the Waltons Richard Hatch is best known in his role as Wade Walton, a relative of the Waltons. He lived with his wife Vera, his grandfather and great-grandmother Martha Corrine in the Blue Ridge Mountains, and there, with the support of the Waltons from Waltons Mountain, tried to defend his land against the construction of a large-scale project. This episode was called "The Conflict" from the 3rd season.

We personally met Richard Hatch on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the Waltons 2012 in Los Angeles. It is hard to imagine that this sympathetic, so good-looking man, who still radiated so much youthfulness and never looked like being almost 70 years, is now no longer with us. Very sad.

Here is a link to the website of Richard Hatch . And another link to a condolence book for fans who want to leave a few words.

Good night Richard !


We wish all friends of THE WALTONS and visitors of our website a

Happy and healthy NEW YEAR !
