Columbus, IN
This former A&W Root Beer last housed Becker's Drive-in. Becker's opened in 1949 at this location. The original building was demolished in the early 1960s and this one was erected then. I don't know when the relationship with A&W started or ceased. Becker's closed in 2016. The building was demolished in 2019.
