I don't know what year that Hillcrest closed; however, it was still in use in 1967 and closed in June, 1971 when I took several pictures. It was soon after that Bob and Floyd Holsinger bought the entire facility at auction, including the 17 acres that comprised Hillcrest. They sold the entire acreage to a developer; according to Bob, he and Floyd were not prepared to develop the area themselves and were surprised that they were able to buy it so cheaply ($28k). Consequently, Bob and Floyd did not benefit financially themselves.
I was at Hillcrest from 9/44 to 6/51 and graduated from Wheelersburg High School in 1953.
