The Burchfield Drive-In was located in the small Knox County community of Solway, which is right across the Clinch River from Oak Ridge. It was opened prior to 1955, and according to an article in The Oak Ridger, the Burchfield Drive-In was run by W.J. Hatfield who operated the Skyway Drive-In and Elza Drive-In in Oak Ridge. According to the article, ‘When the water is low, the ridges of the parking area of the Burchfield Drive-In can be seen just west of the bridge, if one uses just a bit of imagination.’ So I assume the drive-in was swallowed up by Melton Hill Lake when Melton Hill Dam was completed in 1963.
