Grandma and Grandpa - Married 50 Years


The episode in season 2, The Heritage, is all about a salesman seeing the beauty of Waltons Mountain, and making a very generous offer to John Walton, to buy the Walton home and the mountain. During this episode, many of the family members, especially John and Olivia, John Boy and Zeb and Esther, reminisce about what their mountain home means to each of them. As John Boy says, their home, the mountain, and the family members are all part of the heritage which they will pass onto future Walton generations...a heritage that he fears that Jim Bob and Elizabeth have only really just begun to experience.

Needless to say, the episode ends happily, with John having decided against selling out. His parents, Esther and Zebulon, have a party at the end, with their family and friends, to celebrate their golden wedding anniversary
