Welcome to my website.  My name is Ken Anderson and I am the Mayberry Guru from Eau Claire, Wisconsin.  Please take a few moments and look around.  You will discover why I am called the Mayberry Guru.  I have a passion for that wonderful quintessential town of Mayberry, North Carolina.  Enjoy your visit and please tell your friends about my site.

This website is about my love for that famous TV town Mayberry, North Carolina.  It is also about my book Mayberry Reflections the Early Years.  I hope you will take a few minutes to look around my site and if you have any comments or would like more information about ordering a book you will contact me.

An important part of my passion for Mayberry involves traveling around the states of Wisconsin and Minnesota giving a PowerPoint Presentation about Mayberry that I have developed.  During my presentation I take my audiences back to a much slower and simpler time.  I encourage people to slow down and enjoy the simple pleasures of life.  I take them back to my childhood days growing up in a very small town during the late '50's and '60's. All proceeds that I receive from doing presentations and selling my book are donated to my small hometown library in Dorcheter, Wisconsin.  I do what I do, not to make money, but because I love Mayberry and I want to keep it's memory alive.
