Watched Don throughout my life. Still watch the reruns of Andy Griffith. Even enjoy the antics of a VERY young Ron Howard, when he still had hair.

Statue is outside of theater. We loved "Threes Company" and Don Knotts. He was a funny actor. It is a must see in WV for a 5 minute stop. There are plenty of restaurants along the street too.

We didn't know a Don Knotts statue was there. As we drove around looking at the area, there it was! It added a bit of fun to a busy, traffic-filled, slow drive around downtown.
