    I live near a real Walnut Grove, and trust me, you'd be specifying "not THAT Walnut Grove" if you'd ever been there.

    The problem with living in Collinwood is that you never know where your furniture is going to be placed on any given day, and I'm not sure I'd want all of those boom mics in my house...

    But I WOULD like to explore the house, just to see how it's really laid out. I mean we see the great room and foyer all the time, but other than Roger's study and the kitchen eating area, we never saw any more of the downstairs. Surely there are many, many more rooms.

    Perhaps off topic but for the late 60s and on a daytime budget the set decorators were above any other show. Angelique's room in the east wing in the last year was outstanding. The Old House and Laura's cottage in 1966-67 was beautiful with Diana and of course Josette coming out of the portrait. I remember Alexandra speaking that an ABC man who did not know the show threw out part of the Old House because he thought it was junk in 1966 pre Barnabas.

    I guess I love Collinwood because I have been there. I shall never forget the thrill of seeing the house up close in Newport. The rain was coming down and I thought what a perfect way to view it.

    Yes I would love to live in that house all jokes aside. The whole place was sold for 16 thousand dollars at one time. The new owners now rent rooms and it has been in a feature film from last year.

    Mark,I too have seen The Great House (Seaview Terrace / Salve Regina). I wish I had seen The Old House before it burned down, though.

    It said arson at that link. I hope they caught who did it.

    Radioman,I would suggest Laura Collins, but that would probably fall on deaf ears. ;)

    Even if it was David, she's been such a weirdo influence on him... the kid was driven to do it!
