The Andy Griffith Playhouse, circa 1920, is the first known site of a public school in Mount Airy.

It was named after Andy Griffith in the early 1970s. Nearby is the "Andy & Opie" TV Land Landmark Statue. The new amphitheatre made from Mount Airy granite provides entertainment throughout the year.
