Unfortunately it is on a busy street. We had to stop in a no parking zone (one just vacated by someone else doing the same thing) and quick took pictures. Worth the stop if i the area.

Statue was on a very busy street little difficult to find parking. If you are in area it is nice to see.

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.

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.
