"The actual location of Hooterville was one of the many running gags of the show. It was never disclosed as to what state Hooterville was supposedly in. Frequently, the writers would put conflicting "hints" into the episodes to further confuse viewers.
(Side note: In the Green Acres special edition three tape set, the host states that Hooterville is in Virginia. However, I believe this is an error.)
(Bonus side note: Superfan Geoff Capp noticed that in the Return to Green Acres movie, Mr. Drucker said the zip code of Hooterville was 40516 and 1/2. He did some research and found that Lexington, KY, has a ZIP code of 40516. A possible answer? Or more misinformation?)....
...The opening credits, including the farm house with the title on it, were shot in Thousand Oaks, California. The title was painted by Max Thornton. The ACTUAL Green Acres house (Where Lisa and Oliver lived), however, was only a sound stage."

AFAIK, the exact location of the town was never given on PJ, which supports that FAQ.
When we rented the DVDs of Season 1 from Netflix, Linda Kaye Henning ('daughter' of Kate and real daughter of Paul Henning who created the show) gave a lot of background info in the Special Features. She said her dad based the premise of the show (widow running inn in the country) on his MIL's life. If I'm not mistaken, she said that inn was in Missouri.
God is not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.

Considering Green Achres is such a surreal place, maybe Hootervill was not in a state, or maybe it was in a ficticious state. They said the state flower was a ragweed, so maybe in this universe there is a 51st state, lol.
Question your prejudices.
Hooterville, Crabwell Corners, Pixley, Stankwell Falls and all the other fine cities on Green Acres were located in The Kangaroo State.
