    Don Knotts at home

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Morgantown has honored their native son, Don Knotts (Mayberry's favorite deputy), by putting a large Star in the sidewalk outside of the Metropolitan Theatre. Don died before the star was installed but he knew that it was planned for him and he thanked the town and the mayor for giving him this honor.

    the Star is at 369 High Street.

    to get there:
    I-79 exit 152 onto US19 east. go ast on US19, across the river, becomes route 7 one-way going east. pass High St. go to Spruce St (US119) one-way to Fayette St, go west one block on Fayette St. back to High St (one-way) and go south to the theater.
