    • Opening Narration: Most of the time when strangers appeared on Walton's Mountain they were people who had taken the wrong turn from the main highway and had gotten themselves lost. But the coming of World War Two was to bring many strangers who were actually looking for the mountain, and while we didn't exactly have a traffic problem, we did have traffic. And that's what gave my brother Ben the idea for the boldest venture he had ever attempted.

    • Closing Narration: The important thing about any community is not the grandeur of its buildings but the spirit of its people. Ben and the Boosters continued to work together to help the little town through its growing pains. Ben went back to work at our father's mill, but he had proved he could make good on his own. Walton's Mountain didn't become the largest town in Jefferson County, but it did prosper and expand in the years to come. Corabeth's dream of a town square with a fountain did come true. Though it didn't have the splendor that she had envisioned, that cool spring water gave welcome refreshment to home folks and strangers alike.
