This past weekend, scores of people flocked to the Blue Ridge Mountains in Virginia to mark the 45th anniversary of the television series ‘The Waltons’. The show chronicled a struggling family living through the Great Depression. The reunion comes one year after the death of the show’s creator but the message of the series lives on.

The Waltons were a big family: two parents, two grandparents, and seven children, all living in the same house. The show was told through the eyes of the eldest son, John Boy.
