  • This is a great little place to visit. There is no regulation though so you might be the only people there or 10 people. It is at your own risk/pace. Would recommend the squad car tours next door the....  more »

  • The Mayberry Courthouse and Jail is such a quintessential Mt Airy place to visit. Not only is it nostalgic because of the Andy Griffith Show fame, the courthouse and jail give you sense of what this part of life was really like in Mt. Airy in a bygone era. Moreover, the nostalgia for us was only increased as we visited the place completely and seemingly on our own; the door was open, no one was around and, with so much trust associated with that kind of experience, it brought us back to a time that just doesn’t exist in most places today! Something to note: if you are expecting to see the same kind of jail as in the TV show however, you will be surprised. The real Mayberry (Mt. Airy) courthouse and jail is really tiny compared to what you see on TV for the Andy Griffith Show. Nonetheless, the place is still decorated and furnished as it would have been in its heyday and is just a fun place to check out. Right next door is the old garage station and so you can tour around and enjoy multiple sites even though your destination might only be the courthouse and jail. Overall, this is a really cool place and I strongly recommend taking the time to visit!
  • Highly recommend visiting here. It is amazing how much came back to me when I got to sit in Andy's chair or slip into Otis's cell and shut the door behind me and hang the key on the nail right next to the cell door. I loved it and will go back again.
