The Dukes Of Hazzard 40th Anniversary Filming Locations Lookback, Part Three: Mary Kaye’s Baby

This is the third in our series of looking back at the Georgia filming locations for The Dukes of Hazzard. It’s a little known fact that only the first five episodes from season one were filmed in Georgia. In fact, most of the filming took place during the winter of 1978 in and around the towns of Covington, Conyers, and Social Circle. After that, filming moved to the Warner Brothers Burbank Studios in Burbank, California and Walt Disney’s Golden Oak Ranch in Newhall, California.

Original air date: February 9, 1979

Synopsis: Bo and Luke help their old friend, Mary Kaye Porter, escape a crime boss who is after her to recover $118,254.37 she took from him as a trust fund for her unborn baby.

While outrunning Enos in Cooter’s Plymouth, the Duke boys jump over an old wooden bridge. Seems Cooter was hauling moonshine whiskey for Boss Hogg in the car. Today, the wooden fence on the sides has been updated with concrete and metal side rails.

Location: 300 East Hightower Trail, Social Circle, Georgia 30025

The old general store and gas station where the Duke boys took Mary Kaye to get supplies for her trip to Florida is long gone. In its place is a Marathon gas station and convenience store.

Location: 4034 Georgia Highway 20, Conyers, Georgia 30012

While outrunning the Atlanta crime boss, Quint McQuade, and his goon, the Duke boys and Mary Kaye duck under a bridge to elude the gangsters. The old, rickety bridge is now gone, replaced by a modern concrete bridge.

The Duke boys bring Mary Kaye back to Uncle Jessie’s home to deliver her baby. As they drive in on the main road, they pass an old shed on the side of the road. It’s still there today, but looks like it hasn’t been used in many years.

Location: 2201 Lenora Road, Loganville, Georgia 30052

Episode Addendum:

If you missed the General Lee, you’re not alone. This is the only episode that the General Lee does not appear.
