Freeman Army Air Field Museum Updates
The recently enlarged Freeman Army Airfield Museum Gift Shop area has many items of interest, including our new T-shirts, baseball caps, lapel pins and refrigerator magnets. These are in addition to the coffee mugs and historic videos that have been available for a long time.
The Freeman Army Air Field Museum is located at 1035 A Ave., Seymour, across the street from the terminal building at the airport. It is open every Saturday morning from 10:00 until 1:00, and other times by appointment.
Groups are welcome and encouraged. Call 812-271-1821 to make arrangements.
Note that the FAAFM is seeking volunteers for the purpose of staffing expanded regular hours of operation beyond Saturday mornings. Hours under consideration are Wednesday through Saturday, 10 AM to 2 PM. If you would like to volunteer to work in the museum as a docent a few days a month please call the curator, Larry Bothe, at 812-521-7400.

The propellers used to be on a high, A-frame shaped display cart. That cart took up a lot of valuable floor space, and visually blocked the line-of-sight to other displays. The propellers have been removed from the cart and instead hung on the south wall of the Dig Room in the annex. They look much better there.
