This former A&W Root Beer operated from the 1950s until the 1970s when the name was changed to Henry's Root Beer Stand. Henry's closed in 2007. In 2009, the drive-in reopened as he Stand Drive-in. When this 2009 photo was taken, the building was being used as an off-season Christmas tree stand. By 2012, the drive-in had been demolished and replaced with a Dunkin' Donuts.
