    Not sure when it was built. It was shut down about 12 years ago when a newer facility with a larger runway and better hangars were built. All of the hangars have been demolished, as well as the fueling station. All that remains is a small office building, the tarmac and an overgrown 4000 ft runway.

    Edit - the small office building had been torn down now and the runway is getting really hard to see from all of the farming activiites... (August 2011)

     Future Plans
    I'm sure it will continue to decay, or be plowed under for farmland.
