Andy Griffith's Boyhood Home, Mount Airy "Mayberry" North Carolina

"Mayberry" Mount Airy is just 1 hour 30 minutes from The Claiborne House Bed and Breakfast.
Innjoy this video from Dan Travelling. If get a chance, stop in to Mount Airy and say "HEY!" to Keith Holland Assistant City Manager who was our Town Manager here in Rocky Mount when we first moved here in 2004.


2010 was the 50th anniversary of the Andy Griffith Show.  We had guests head down for the day to take in some of the celebrations!

A couple of my favorite guests live in Mount Airy.  Learning more about these Blue Ridge Mountains, things such as Ernest T and his rock throwing, I have discovered this is a place on the Blue Ridge Parkway not far from us call Mayberry Trading Post.  Just speculating, of course, but perhaps that is where the name came from for Andy Griffith's town.  Whenever they mention Mount Pilot you should know they really speak of Pilot Mountain (also a stone's throw from Mt Airy NC) More info on that click here.

More trivia on The Andy Griffith Show can be found here.
Claiborne House is a green lodging
