We visited Mt. Airy, North Carolina a while back and took in some the of touristy spots related to the 1960’s classic TV program “The Andy Griffith Show.” Remember that one? The show centered around a fictional North Carolina town called Mayberry. It premiered in 1960, ran for eight years, and was a favorite for us folks of a certain age.
While putting together this home movie, we couldn’t help but think that life was so much kinder and gentler in the ‘Mayberry’ days. We've included some video we shot in Mt. Airy and some excerpts from the TV show, courtesy of a 30 year reunion show that aired in 1993. We hope you enjoy them both.
