this is Mayberry RFD May 23, 2010
I went here I think in 2008.

This is the town Mayberry RFD is based on. Mt Airy is Mayberry and nearby Pilot is Mt Pilot. It has Floyd's Barbershop, the Bluebird Diner, etc. It is like walking the main street of the TV show! Andy Griffith based the show on this town, his town. His boyhood house is there. Not only can you wax nostalgic in that town, there are other gems to be found. Historic homes to tour, a granite mine that is so huge it can be seen by the astronauts and a museum that not only features Andy Griffith but the Asian Siamese twins. Male twins that lived and died connected. They wed wives and had many, many children. It is all there to be discovered and explained - I won't spoil it for you. It is a walking tour of the Andy Griffith area, you'll need a car for the house tour and granite mine.
