Mayberry is Alive and Well in Rogersville, AlabamaPosted: May 21, 2012 Herny David Thoreau went to the woods because he wanted to "live deliberately." I go to Rogersville, Alabama. Rogersville is a progressive little town that has managed to keep the flavor of a time gone by. Located in north Alabama between the cities of Athens and Florence, Rogersville bears a close resemblance to the fictional town of Mayberry from the Andy Griffith show. Because I am fascinated by what is referred to as "six degrees of separation," I cannot resist including the fact that the late George Lindsey (aka Goober Pyle ) received his BS degree in 1952 at what is now the University of North Alabama in Florence, just thirty minutes up the road.
Have a blessed Day. Betty Maloney
