In the episode where they built the eskimo boat, Ward states the ocean is twenty miles away, that would put it on the east or west coast. Since beaver wore his coat a lot it would put it on the north east or north west coast. The letter could have stood for any town. Mayfield represents no known town.

I think it could be in Ohio.I live in Ohio- and in fact close to Mayfield Heights,Ohio. For years I lived in Shaker Heights,where Ward said he grew up.Whenever I drive down one street in Mayfield Heights,and drive past Mayfield High School,I always remember Wally Cleaver and whistle the Beaver theme to myself.

It was Ohio. Euclid Avenue. The Ohio State pennant on Eddie Haskell's bedroom wall. Gotta be Ohio.

It was filmed in California but I think The Cleavers lived in Ohio I am pretty sure and how I think so is becuase Larry Mondello's father is always in Cincinatti. Its just a guess I have.

I mean the show was filmed in California but the characters of the show The Cleavers probably lived in Mayfield, Ohio.

Every time I watch the show I can't help but think Ohio is where it took place. The Cleveland suburbs and Cincinnati (where Larry Mondello's father always was) have always gotten mention. In one episode a girl named Allison moves into Beaver's school, and she said she was from Hamilton, some 30 miles north of Cincinnati.

Then in one episode Wally and his friends mentioned Route 7, which exists in eastern Ohio from Conneaut to Chesapeake (north of Huntington, WV).

How could the location be Ohio as Ward mentioned the ocean being close to their home?

In the book The world according to Beaver the author stated that the writers made the location of Mayfield a secret , possibly so this conversation could go on for years.

I wonder if one of the head writers,either Mosher or Connelly,was an Ohioan.That would explain many references.

Well, I think we can go around and around in circles discussing this topic. I guess its been one of those strange mysteries about the show that has existed since it went off the air. This and what actually Ward's occupation was. Personally, I think the show was based in Ohio, but who really knows.

At the beginning of the later episodes, each of the family members run out the front door and get into the car (Ward is carrying a thermos, Wally a beach towel). However, there is no state on the car's rear license plate which is shown very clearly! The episode where Wally gets roped into taking the Beav and his friends camping, it seems there were mountains shown (painted) in the background and Eddy falls off of a clift/ledge. Are there mountains along route 7 in western Ohio? Does anyone remember the name of the lake that they went to?

You have to remember that the show was taped in California, so the mountains that you see in some of the later episodes are the ones near Los Angeles. I can't remember the name of those mountains right now, but there's a chain that runs close to LA

The Lake that they most often visit is called Friend's Lake, and I know they visit Crystal Falls early on. I think that's a lake on the show, too.
