Short Description: 

Andy Griffith's Boyhood Home is now a Bed and Breakfast. It is located at 711 E. Haymore St., Mount Airy, NC.

Long Description:

Andy Griffith was an actor and Grammy Award winning singer. He grew up in this modest house in Mt. Airy, NC. This town is the model for his long running TV program The Andy Griffith Show (1960 -1968) which takes place in the fictional town of Mayberry, NC. You won't have any trouble finding the home since it is right across the road from the huge water tower at the highest point in the town.

A sign outside is inscribed:

Andy Griffith's
1935 - 1966
