Description 

This was one of three remaining McDonald's drive ins built in the classic double-arches style designed by architect Stanley Meston. That style was phased out by McDonald's in 1969. The Powell Boulevard McDonald's was closed in 1980 when a newer styled restaurant was built on an adjacent lot. It was preserved as an historical curiosity and events space until 2018.
