Thompsons Drive-In
US 460, Appomattox, Va.
known year of operation: 1952

This briefly-lived drive-in can probably lay claim to being the first in Appomattox County, having appeared on the scene in early April 1952, a full two months before the Coswell. It was built by Percy Thompson on land recently vacated by the state highway department, next door to his restaurant.
