|Parkette Drive In
|The Parkette Drive In opened in 1951 and still offers car hop service. The animated sign is about 35 feet tall. It was built in 1957 and cost $10,000 to produce. It has been estimated that it would cost about $100,000 to build it today. The sign costs about $1,000 per year to maintain the neon. It is believed that this drive-in was inspired by another Parkette Drive-in in West Virginia, most likely Long's Parkette in Kenova. In 2013, a Dine-In Garage was added.
