When you get down south you tend to see a lot of Sweetwaters. Don’t know where it came from but you do read a lot about Sweetwater.
So naturally, Barnwell, S.C. had a Sweetwater Drive-In. Like the other two drive-ins in this town, it served a population of workers at the Savannah River Bomb Plant.
The Sweetwater Drive-In parked 250 cars and was owned by Mrs. J.F. Dobson. Barnwell was a town of three drive-ins and all three were owned by ladies. I don’t know if they were local but just the same they took pride in the business that was mainly a male occupation.
The Sweetwater Drive-In was still in operation in the late-1950’s, but I’m sure once television took over it quickly went dark like so many drive-ins in this area.
