I believe the drive in was next to the now present mobile home park according to Google Earth. The property is now part of the Jagoe-Public Co. Please see photo section.

Boxoffice ran a lengthy article about the “Coed,” with a couple of wide photos, in its Sept. 5, 1953 issue. Owners Jerry and Bonnie Stout had parked a full carnival in front of the place during the showing of the movie “The Greatest Show on Earth”.
