The Evergreen Drive-In was about 5 miles West of Ishpeming about 1 mile West of De Rochas Club 41 Steakhouse. All that is left there is a fence and remnants of a mobile home. The owners name was Keskatalo (kes ca talo) and toward the end of his ownership he showed only x-rated films as the back of the screen was toward the highway and nobody lived where they could see the screen.

The Evergreen was the first drive-in in Marquette Co and was still open after the Airport Drive in closed. If you attended the drive in during the X rated movie days it was all pickup trucks, one person in each truck and a few beer cans on the ground around the trucks as a lot of construction was going on in Marquette co at the time. The only X rated film shown at the Hiawatha Drive-In was Alan Funts "What do you say to a naked lady?" This movie today would be PG-13.
