The Cadiz Drive-In was located on US 250 south of town. It was opened on July 13, 1950, featuring “Without Reservations” starring Claudette Colbert and John Wayne. It had a parking ramp that held 300 cars, and Tallmadge Wilson was the theatre manager. Ross Compher and Chester Hall were the owners. In 1963 it was sold to new owners. Co-Operative Theatres of Ohio was the booking and buying agency.

The Cadiz Drive-In was closed at the end of 1984 and it is now used as an auto-parts yard.

Giffens had great homemade ice cream.

The town of Tappan and then Tappan Lake being made. It is quite fascinating to know that a town was once where the lake is now.
