The Pilot Drive-In opened prior to 1955 located in the town of Pilot Mountain, N.C. It parked 225 cars and was operated by two local bankers, J. Wick Gordon and Joseph Pell. The town’s claim to fame was being mentioned on “The Andy Griffith Show”. Mount Airy was the town that Mayberry was loosely based on for the TV show and Andy Griffith’s home town. The town next to Mayberry was named Mount Pilot. It is variation of the name Pilot Mountain.
The Pilot Drive-In finally closed in December of 1985 and was demolished. The Howell-Nelson Funeral Services & Crematory was built on the site of the old drive-in.
