Grandma finds that the old Whittley house is going to be demolished and she feels that instead it should be renovated for all the community to share. Together with the Baldwin sisters they try to collect signatures to petition that the house not be pulled down. Grandpa, however, goes ahead and gets the contract for the Walton company to demolish the house, not realising or remembering why his wife has such sentimental attachments for the old house. In his eyes the house needs to be pulled down, because it is a hazard the way it is, and there is excellent lumber which can be salvaged from the house, which someone may as well use. Needless to say, tempers fly as the two take opposing sides, and John Boy gets caught in the middle when he is given his first editorial to write...about whether or not the house should be saved!
