GRAND FORKS, N.D. (WDAZ TV) - A drive-in restaurant in North Dakota is now on the National Register of Historic Places.

The federal government says Kegs Drive-In in Grand Forks is worthy of preservation and recognition.

The Drive-In is made up of two barrel-shaped wooden structures built in 1935, with a rectangular middle building that serves as the front counter for the restaurant.

The barrels were once two story tall root beer stands.

Kegs held a dedication ceremony to celebrate the event, complete with an Elvis impersonator.

Laura Hanson, Kegs Drive-In: "It's wonderful. The weather couldn't have been any better. And I just peeked around the corner, there are a lot of people here!"

The restaurant has been in Grand Forks for 77 years.
