The Relocation Of Walnut Hill

Walnut Hill Productions relocated to Clearwater, Florida during the last days of July, 2005. We moved from our humble little Victorian cottage in Maryville, Tennessee to Tom Hoehn's residence in Clearwater. The move began on Thursday afternoon and was completed Friday, the next day.

Below are pictures of the truck and the Walnut Hill Manor as we were loading out. It took us a bit over three hours to load the truck. We started at around noon and finished a little after three in the afternoon.

we closed the door on the truck.

After pulling out of Maryville, we headed south to Atlanta, Georgia for two stops at two fine installations. First up was a stop at Ron Carter's house to play his fine Allen GW-IV Digital Theatre Organ.

The second stop was at Bucky Reddish's house to play his Walker RTO 3/35 Digital Theatre Organ. Bucky took us in and made us feel right at home. We spent the night at Bucky's and pulled out early Friday morning to continue our journey onward to Clearwater, Florida.

mustered enough strength to cheerfully play Bucky's gorgeous Walker RTO-335.

We arrived in Clearwater at 4:31 in the afternoon and proceeded to get things set up at Tom's house. We rested for a bit to take in one of Florida's beautiful sunsets and then began the arduous task of offloading the things the Doc would need to get Walnut Hill going again. Most of the cargo was taken to a climate-controlled warehouse for storage the following day.

obviously happy to see the Walnut Hill office running again.

We spent most of the evening getting things going. The end of the day saw four tired but very happy folks, indeed. Now that we are finally settled down in Clearwater, Walnut Hill is as Farney WurliTzer would say, "Back in bidness!"
