Sky-Line Drive-In

Built during the H-Bomb Savannah River Plant era, the Sky-Line Drive-In was one of many drive-ins that popped up in Aiken and Barnwell Counties in South Carolina.

The Sky-Line Drive-In was located on Highway 19 and held 294 cars. It was open only from 1953 to 1955 and operated by J.T. Greene Jr & Mrs. J.T. Greene Jr. of Branchville. Very much an over screened area. Located in New Ellenton, a town in fact, created when the Bomb plant took the entire town of Ellenton, S.C. for its hugh site.

It took the reporter from the Aiken Standard to find this Drive-in,I had no idea New Ellington ever had a Drive-in.Would love to find some old ads.

The above address will map accurately to the location of the drive-in, which is still clearly visible in aerial photos from 1971.
