Grew up watching Don Knotts on the Andy Griffith show. We did not realize that he was from this area until we saw the statue. We took our picture with it and walked away with a smile and talking about him. Very pleasant experience

If you're a true fan or Don this is a great stop. Make sure you use the Metropolitan address. 371 High St, Morgantown, WV 26505. My google maps took us to a restaurant and had to go to trip advisor to get the exact location.
