More Map Coolness and a Guessing Game

Have you checked out Wikimapia yet?

I found it this morning and spent 20 minutes adding the places from my childhood.  And, what a treat, the pictures are several years old, so I was able to find this:

This is the place where my darling husband proposed to me.  It's a Costco and a Home Depot now.  Anyone wanna guess what it was?  (hint: the left side is already being demolished, the right side is still intact...)  Anyone who ACTUALLY knows the answer (BN, SS, etc.) isn't allowed to play!

h/t Cobb, who put in a lot of cool places, too.

Looks like a four-screen drive-in movieplex.

I have no clue - but, a church or a school?

Bomb site? Race track?

I think McGehee is right.

DNC headquarters?

I'm with McGehee and Beth C...the screens are gone, but the four grassy areas are where the cars parked?

Darn you. Darn you all to heck!

What a time sink. And I've only just begun to label Middleboro, Halifax, and other stuff in the area. At least I noticed some dork had no idea what the famous Powder Point Bridge was called, had labeled it "really long wooden bridge," and I was able to correct it.

It is indeed a Drive In. Not grass, but gravelly, as on the right side of the picture.

Good guesses, all.

Okay now I see it. I didn't know that's where he proposed, but it holds fond memories for Warne rand I too.
