We first told you about the sale of the old Earl Hamner homeplace in our Facebook post on Wednesday . Three different individuals from across the U.S. came together to preserve the legacy of Earl Hamner’s childhood home. Hamner  (a frequent contributor to this magazine  in our early years) is best known for creating the long running CBS television series The Waltons .
Ray Castro who coordinated and produced Earl Hamner Storyteller , a biography of Hamner’s life, went into a partnership with two other people to purchase the home.
The Waltons Hamer House, as it’s now being called, will be open to the public for tours for a small admission price. You can click here for more details and information on hours and fees.
