Abstract:
Mount Airy vacillates cashing in on a connection to Andy Griffith and the TV series the town inspired. Pride in their native son is displayed in facilities such as the Andy Griffith Museum and Mount Airy Visitors Center. A preference to cleave to the town’s identity is expressed by younger generations who want Mount Airy to be just Mount Airy. Willingness to heighten a connection to the classic comedy is reflected in Mayberry Consignments and Mayberry Days.
