The owner of this drive in was Mr. D. L. McLain who opened the Star in Wauseon and also this place.

Might be a mistake in owners here - Bill Jenkins built and ran the Sky in Adrian, not the Skyline in Morenci. I do not recall the original builder of the Morenci Drive-in but it was the same fellow that built the Star Drive-in in Wauseon Ohio not too far away. He sold the Wauseon drive-in to the Wyse family about 1961. They ran it until Sept 1999.

A recent site inspection confirms the info of other sources, which is, the location was just north of the Ohio border (by about 50 feet) and that a factory is now located on the old lot.

There is a factory on the propety now,no trace of this drive in exist.
