Center Drive-In

The Drive-In sat on the NE side of the town on US Highway 281 just north of the road. The Drive-In was opened on May 30, 1952 when it was operated by Dan Blair.

The Center Drive-In was in existence in the 1970’s, but by 1991 had been demolished and today is an auto salvage yard.

There is no trace of the drive-in left save for the general outline, the old entrance road and the foundation of the screen.
