Located to the south of Hamilton on Highway 281. The 281 Drive-In was the first drive in located in Texas to have a swimming pool inside the grounds, located next to the concession building. The pool was very large with colored lights in the bottom. The drive-in was owned by Harold and Rosa Stroud. The operation schedule for the theater was May until late-Fall. About 1964 the drive in was sold to Jack and Mary Haynie. He ran it for a few more years and then closed it. He then turned the property into a race track for the kids. Then sold the property later on. Some closed abandoned businesses sit on the highway frontage part of the property. At one end there is an operating motel. The concession building is still sitting in the open field.
