More Info The Museum of American Frontier Culture explores the lives of ordinary people, pioneer farmers, and artisans who moved from Europe into the Shenandoah Valley. At this living museum, you discover 18th- and 19th-century farmsteads, each producing livestock and crops as they did when the first farmers arrived. You see many historical pioneer farming practices used here. For over a decade, THE WALTONS were everyone’s family. People are still drawn to the village of Schuyler, where the story began. It was in this setting that Earl Hamner Jr., the author of The Homecoming, was born on July 10, 1923. Hamner recorded his childhood adventures in journals that later became the foundation for much of his work in television and film.
