The fans have gone and Richard Thomas is headed home after a fun and memory filled weekend in Schuyler, Virginia. It marked the 25th anniversary of the Waltons Mountain Museum and several different events gave fans a chance to have pictures made with Thomas and get his autograph. We told you about his arrival in this post on Friday – October 20, 2017.

Todd Hobson was able to give Thomas a ride to Schuyler in his old Model A Ford that was very similar to one used in the TV series. “He was a very nice person who truly seemed to appreciate all of the Virginia hospitality,” Todd told us.
