The Rock Hill remained mostly intact until just a few years ago. It's rusted, tattered screen and buildings were demolished. A new fire station is on part of the property, with the rest being used as a field behind the firehouse. You can tell it was a drive-in, though, as the ramps are still mostly there.

Are all the grounds taken already? Or is it still possible to procure the rest to re-open the Rock Hill? I would love to know! I want to open a drive in! Always been my dream!!!

I managed this drive in for the 1955 season. An experience I will never forget!
