Hi-Way Drive-In

Located to the west of Craigsville on Highway 42. The tiny Craig Drive-In was opened in 1953 by John M. Herndon. It was renamed Hi-Way Drive-In in 1965. There was a dirt stock-car race track located at the rear of the drive-in.

Today, the site is derelict and overgrown.

A closer address (at least for Google) is Little Calf Pastures Highway and Wallace Draft Rd, Craigsville, VA.

Today, the property is empty with no trace of the drive-in remaining. http://tinyurl.com/zx9kh34

Small Correction: The old marquee is still standing. Otherwise, there appears to be nothing left.

Should be listed as demolished. Just a sign out by the highway.

Odd that the ad spells it ‘Hi-Way’, while the sign says ‘Hi Way’, or possibly even ‘Hiway’.

On April 1, 2019, the Staunton (VA) News Leader ran a story about local artist Mark Cline placing an April Fools installation at the old Hiway sign. It got a positive reaction from “Junior Campbell, the farmer who owns the property”.

Is the dirt stock-car track still there at the rear of the drive-in site?
