Andy Griffith's widow to turn his home into rubble, not Matlock museum3/21/2013
Sorry, Andy Griffith fans, but it's looking increasingly unlikely that you'll be able to someday pay tribute to the TV legend at his former home. His widow, Cindi Griffith, has received a permit to tear down the waterfront house on the Roanoke Sound, N.C., that he bought in the '50s. Costume designer William Ivey Long, whose parents were friends with Griffith, said Griffith told him in 2007 that he'd hoped the home would someday become a museum preserving items from "The Andy Griffith Show," "Matlock" and his other classic roles. It's not yet confirmed if demolition has already begun. "I don't think he thought [Cindi] would want to do that ... I always thought it would remain," said Della Basnight, a Griffith family friend.
