Get Directions
Outside of the Andy Griffith Museum in Mount Airy, North Carolina — the town that inspired the fictional town of Mayberry there’s a statue of two main characters from The Andy Griffith Show, (a popular television program that ran on CBS in the 1960s): Sheriff Andy Taylor (Andy Griffith) and Opie Taylor (Ron Howard). The bronze statue was donated by TV Land, a station known for it’s nostalgic programming and old-time reruns, in 2004. Dubbed “Goin’ Fishin’,” it depicts a fishing scene from the show’s opening credits. The Andy Griffith statue is a copy of the original that was placed in the state’s capital of Raleigh.
