The Waltons - Sets, Structures & Locations
The Walton's made use of many period appropriate buildings, sets and locations. While Walton's Mountain is not a real place in name it represents the small community of Schuyler, Virginia where the show creator, Earl Hamner grew up. Towns like Charlottesville and cities like Richmond depicted in the show are in fact real places located in Virginia and there inclusion helped to blur the lines between the reality and fiction of Earl Hamner's experiences while growing up in Virginia.

The Walton's made use of many period appropriate buildings, sets and locations. Being a domestic, family based drama much of the action was staged in and around the Walton family home.

Boatwright University and Westham


The first time John-Boy visits the University of Virginia he goes to seek medical advice. The real University is located in Charlottesville. When he applies and becomes a freshman the same set used to represent the University of Virginia is now referred to as Boatwright University.
