Hillsville Drive-In
US 58 east, Hillsville, Va.
known years of operation: 1951-61; 1964
currently: high-school football field

This little town's drive-in heritage is literally buried -- under the thousands of tons of dirt used to bring the land level with the adjacent county high school built in the mid-'60s, so it could be used for the athletic field. It originally sat in a little cove at the junction of the highway and the creek running along the town limits.

Below is part of a 1955 aerial photo showing the drive-in.
