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

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,
