    Springs Road Drive-In

    Favorite thing: As we were driving along Springs Road in Hickory, I couldn't believe what I was seeing. It was a flash from the past - a Drive-In Theatre. SPRINGS ROAD DRIVE-IN THEATRE is now a Flea Market venue, but the old movie screen is still there and the Old Snack Bar too. Even the posts to hold the sound speakers are still there - Cool or what!

    Located at 3451 Springs Rd. NE Hickory

    The Flea Market is open year round
    Saturday and Sunday

    Favorite thing: The city of HICKORY is located in Catawba County North Carolina. In the 1850's Henry Robinson built t tavern of logs under a huge Hickory tree. "Hickory Tavern" was established in 1863. The name was changed to Hickory in 1873.
    The first train operated in "Hickory Tavern" in 1859. Hickory is also home to one of the oldest furniture manufacturers (Hickory Manufacturing Company - built in 1902) in the the United States that is still located and operated on the original site,
    Hans and I visited Hickory for three days, October 28, 29 & 30 and were in town to attend a very special VT Wedding,
