News from Walton's Mountain




                     Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year 2023.

And there are always changes ....

Dear Waltonfans,

some days ago we received the news that John & Olivia's B&B is for sale ! The initiator of this great project Carole Johnson has decided to offer the B&B as well as Earl Hamner's house for sale and return to her home in California to her family.

Only 3 years ago John & Olivia's Bed and Breakfast was opened and we had the great pleasure to be there and also to stay there (in the master bedroom). You can see the pictures on our website under Fan Meeting 2019. Of course, Carole's decision makes us all the sadder, especially since the B&B is very well attended and booked.

Now of course the question is, who buys the house or houses (which can also be purchased separately ) and what happens with it. It would be most beautiful if the B&B could be continued in this way, but also a larger family can consider this beautiful house as their private home in the future. Questions about questions - and we fans have to wait for the further development.

This shows once again that nothing is permanent. But we all just hope that it will somehow continue with the beautiful house.

We will keep you up to date.

Here is the link to the official sale announcement of the Walton House with a lot of pictures from the house and the property. Clicking on the first picture opens the picture gallery with 85 pictures.

Here is the link to the Hamner house sales page; also with many pictures.


Happy Anniversary !

Exactly 50 years ago today, "The Waltons" were aired for the first time on American television.

 This picture was created 10 years ago on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the Waltons.


Unforgotten !

Today would be your 99th birthday. We miss you !


Congratulations on your 71st birthday today, dear Richard Thomas !



Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday to Mary McDonough who celebrates her 61. birthday today !



September marks the 50th anniversary of the first broadcast of The Waltons in the US. Contrary to the hopes of many fans, there will obviously be no big celebrations for this occasion this year. That was quite different for the 40th anniversary of the series in 2012 in Los Angeles. As a fan of the series, this makes us a little sad.

In June, fans will have the opportunity to meet Michael Learned in Roanoke, Virginia.  

Here is the official announcement.



Happy Birthday !

Congratulations to Michael Learned, who celebrates her 83rd birthday today.


Sad news !

Actually, we never wanted to have to write these lines:

Yesterday night, exactly 6 years after Earl Hamner, our dear friend Carolyn, the founder of the Walton International Fan Club passed away unexpectedly. We owe Carolyn countless meetings with our idols from the series and, more importantly, a warm, sincere and deep friendship.

We are stunned and infinitely sad.

Good night dear friend and thank you for everything !

  Good night Carolyn!

There will be an obituary at a later date.


Happy Birthday !

Jon Walmsley celebrates his 66th birthday today. We congratulate and wish you all the best.



Congratulations to Judy Norton on her 64th birthday today !


Sad news !

The new year starts with bad news. Actor Morgan Stevens, who portrayed Erin's husband Paul Northridge in The Waltons, was found dead in his apartment on Jan. 26, 2022. The family had not heard from him for several days and eventually notified police. It is assumed that he died of natural causes.

Morgan Stevens was born on Oct. 16, 1951 in Knoxville, Tennessee and died in January 2022 at the age of 70. In addition to his appearances in The Waltons, he appeared in other TV productions, such as seven episodes of Melrose Place, two seasons of the series Fame, Murder she wrote, Hotel, and others. His last appearance was in Walker, Texas Ranger in 1999. After that it became quiet around him.

Good night Morgan Stevens !

Happy New Year!

We wish all Walton friends a healthy, happy and successful New Year!
We are excited to see what news there will be about our Waltons this year. After all, the series will be 50 years old in September. If and in which form this anniversary will be celebrated is of course still uncertain today due to the pandemic. Now we just have to keep our fingers crossed and hope for the best.

Stay healthy everyone !
