  • Great place to see some history. Not very big, and not open every day. This place is supported by the donations they receive. Stop by and check it out!

Check out the last log of Flight 19 that was sent from that base and disappeared off Bermuda Triangle. Also a room full of memorabilia of George HW Bush who was stationed there once. Don't expect large airplanes, but this little gem will provide your family with interesting historical tidbits... Worth a detour!
