The Hamner Theater

A performing arts venue in Nelson County. a theater open to  all residents of Nelson and its surroundings. We have dedicated this theater to one of Nelson County’s most famous residents, Earl Hamner, Jr., creator of THE WALTONS, the long-running and award-winning TV series.  We did this to express our thanks for the contribution he has made to the county in telling the timeless story of his family’s life during the Depression here
