America is a young country but there is still so much history to preserve in our architecture. Right now in Michigan, the factory where Rosie the Riveter and thousands of other women built B-24 bombers during World War II is facing demolition unless it can get enough funding to be turned into a museum. There has also been a huge decline in operating drive-in movie theaters. In 2011, there were only 366 drive-ins in operation in the entire U.S. In North Bend, their movie theater, built in 1941, is raising money to keep its door open and its history alive. The owner of the theater, Cindy Walker, joins New Day Northwest to talk about saving this great historic building.
