The Waltons Hamner House - Boyhood Home of Earl Hamner Jr.

The Waltons Hamner House in Schuyler, Virginia
The Waltons Hamner House is a historic landmark located in Schuyler, Virginia. It's the boyhood home of Earl Hamner Jr., the creator of the hit television show "The Waltons." The house was built in 1915 by M.J. Copps, the manager of the local soapstone quarry at the time. When the company closed, Earl Hamner Sr. purchased the home for around $500.00 and it became the Hamner family home.

It's a modest-sized home containing 3 bedrooms, a bathroom, an eat-in kitchen and a living area. It's a 2-story, white clapboard home with beautiful oak and pinewood floors. One of the things I really liked about the house is the large front porch...the type of porch you see on many country-styled homes, complete with white wooden rocking chairs.
