The Aviation Heritage Park Museum that was just a dream in 2018 is finally coming out of the ground. Fundraising for the $2.5 million, 11,000 square foot building has reached the half-way point, and, after extensive studies and site preparation, real progress is being made. Local construction company Scott, Murphy & Daniel has taken the lead on the foundation and infrastructure for the 1930s-era hangar style building that will house artifacts too small or fragile for outdoor display.
The museum will provide a meeting/event venue, classrooms and interactive displays of artifacts that AHP continues to collect honoring regional aviators, both military and civilian, who have made significant contributions to aviation. The current phase will complete the exterior shell and roof, and is expected to be complete in the Summer of 2021.
