Abandoned "Sonic" Drive-In Restaurant, Clarksville, Indiana

The "Sonic" fast food chain expressed a period of explosive growth in the late 90s, followed by what seemed like a rather quick decline in the late 2000's.  In the southern Indiana, there are now four closed former Sonic locations.  One in New Albany, two in Jeffersonville, and this one in Clarksville.  The buildings are strange and unique, which is why we decided to feature the one shown here.
