Floyd's Barber Shop

Contrary to an earlier tip, Russell Hiatt was not the inspiration for Floyd on The Andy Griffith Show, but the barbershop itself where he worked for decades -- starting when he was a young man -- may have been. The shop was re-named Floyd's to capitalize on the show's popularity. Russell Hiatt said he cut Andy's hair once while Andy was home from college. Russell was a beloved local figure.
