The local civic improvement committee decides that Mayberry should commemorate one of its illustrious citizens by erecting a statue. They focus on one of Andy and Aunt Bee's ancestors, a founder of the town. They hire a local artist to produce a life-sized statue but they may have made a major error. It turns out that the venerated Taylor in question was a major fraudster who had sold land in Mayberry at inflated prices by promising that the railroad would be coming through the town. The railway eventually when through Mount Pilot and a lot of people lost money. It takes a re-assessment of history to allow them to go forward. Written by garykmcd
