The Walton's Mountain Historical Society


The Walton's family is shown during the filming of A Walton Thanksgiving Reunion (CBS, November 21, 1993).

The family reunion is marred by news of President Kennedy's assassination. John-Boy has become a Washington, DC-based TV commentator, Mary Ellen is a doctor, Jason is a professional musician, Ben cuts lumber with John at the mill while Olivia and Grandma maintain the house, Erin is a schoolteacher, Jim Bob is a pilot, and Elizabeth joins the Peace Corps.

The picture was reproduced from a magazine article dated November 19, 1993.
