Howell’s Drive-In was owned by L.L. Howell, so there is no surprise on the name. The Howell Drive-In parked 280 cars.

This suggestive bushy patch in the intersection looked more like a drive-in in older GE views:

Parts of the Howell were still standing into the 80’s, but very overgrown. I never knew it to be operational going back into the 70’s.

If you look on the map to the left of the bushy patch (across highway 5) there are 2 buildings, the one to the south is the Howell home which seems to have been abandoned in the 1980s but is still standing & not in bad shape considering (you can see the garage roof has collapsed in the aerial photo)

BTW this was open at least as far back as August, 1950 because I found a partial playbill with that date (playing Cagney’s G Men (1935), Tobacco Road (1941) & Johnny Stool Pigeon (1949) among others)
