Jewel of the Forest Drive-In

The Jasper Drive-In was under construction in 1952 when the owner was F.W. McManus. He opened it in 1953 as the Jewel of the Forest Drive-In. That name was used by the town to describe itself. It was still open in 1957.

Found It!

A closer address is 506 Old Kirbyville Hwy, Jasper, TX. Google doesn’t map it exactly, but you’ll find the location on the west side of the highway about a quarter-mile south of the intersection of Old Kirbyville Hwy and HWY 96 south of Jasper.

The drive-in appears on a 1952 aerial and 1956 topo map. By 1982, the drive-in had been demolished. Today, a private business occupies the site and virtually nothing of the drive-in remains.
