SIERRA VISTA (KGUN9-TV) - The Sierra Vista Historical Society bestowed official historic designation on the world's first McDonald's drive thru during a special ceremony.
Built in 1975 in Sierra Vista, the drive thru was created to serve Fort Huachuca soldiers who weren't permitted to get out of their cars while wearing fatigues.
The event took place yesterday at the McDonald's on 1802 Fry Blvd.
