If you watched Andy of Mayberry, you'll recall some memorable scenes filmed at the jailhouse. Mount Airy has recreated the exact set where Andy had to lay down the law, especially in regard to the town drunk - Otis. The judge's gavel, the black candlestick...More

The Mayberry Replica Courthouse is a short walk from downtown Mt. Airy. It is a quick stop and free to look through. There is the Darlin' Farmhouse in the back and next door is Wally's Service Station.

You can go there and sit at the desk and get in the Jail original jail cell. Not crowded and you get your own private time to enjoy the moment.

Stepping inside you can just see all the characters. A great place for picture taking and it is right next to the police car tours. Well worth stopping by

Able to see the jail and office. A lot of the props can be handled to take interesting snapshots. If you are an Andy Griffith fan, you should stop in!

The courthouse is located next to Wally's Service Station. Had two grandsons with us, they loved it! Also took a patrol car tour! A must!

The courthouse is set up just like the show. It was awesome walking in and seeing everything like you see on the show. The Andy Griffith Show has always been my all time favorite so was excited to see his hometown.

Inside the courthouse is Andy's desk and a prison cell. There's also a bulletin board with, "Most Wanted," on it. It's located right behind Wally's Service Station. It's free to enter.

I don't remember seeing anything posted for the operating hours. Everything in town seems to be a little bit subjective, with hours that vary depending on the day of the week and the season. We were there on a Saturday in... More
