Home of the Waltons

Waltons Mountain Museum SchuylerSchuyler enjoyed its busiest years when the Alberene Soapstone Company flourished in the 1930’s and 40’s.  At that time soapstone was in great demand for building materials and the plant employed about 1500 local workers.  Production slowed down in the 1970’s but soapstone is still quarried at the Alberene Soapstone Company on a small scale.

Schuyler earned another claim to fame in recent years when author Earl Hamner Jr., created the “The Waltons” television series, based on his experiences growing up in rural Schuyler.  Each year hundreds of visitors come to Schuyler, designated as a historic district, and tour the Walton’s Mountain Museum and the Hamner House, boyhood home of Earl Hamner, Jr.
