First a warning. Sadistic GPS mapping systems -- I'm talking to you, Google Maps -- will send you up Mayberry Creek Road (607) if you are coming from the Southeast. This is a BIG MISTAKE. The road is very narrow and if you meet a...More

We stopped in one day for a soda and a snack. The young lady behind the counter gave us the history on the store. It seems it once was the local post office, then a general store. The place has been in the same family...More

I love the Mayberry Trading Post. I love old stores like this one and I will definitely go back for another visit. The lady that ran the store was very nice and sweet and I told her I loved her store.

Enjoyed looking around this place. Lots of old fashion memories & stuff that modern stores don't sell. Also offers snacks and drinks. Quick trip to the past.

A step back in time...nice people and historic building that at one time was a Post Office. Bathrooms, snacks, crafts and home canned goodies available. Old fashion apple butter making/demonstrations in the Fall... located beside the Blue Ridge Parkway between Milepost 180 and 181.

Found the Mayberry Trading Post while driving the Blue Ridge Parkway. This was a unique old country in the middle of nowhere. They have a friendly proprietor and lots of old fashion items for sale. Great picture location too.
