Everything is exactly as it was in the show even down to the jail cell keys hung up within reach between the two jail cells. Perfect photo opportunities....... This is a must visit!!

This stop is free,so that,in itself, makes it worth the time! It will only take a couple of minutes to see it but it's a great place for pictures and to reminisce about Andy, Barney and Otis.

A pretty fair replica of the jail from the "Andy Griffith Show", which was fun to visit and snap some photos from the inside.
