Open house, rededication set for airfield museum

The Freeman Army Airfield Museum invites the public to an open house and rededication ceremony from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday.

Speakers include Seymour Mayor Craig Luedeman, and the dedication will be at 11 a.m. The museum is at 1035 A Ave. in Seymour.

Those attending will be able to tour the main building and annex. Refreshments will be served.

The purpose of the event is twofold — honoring and thanking individuals and companies who have made a significant contribution to the museum, and celebrating the completion of the reorganization of the museum that began nearly three years ago.

Related items are now grouped together, all displays have explanatory signs, lighting is improved and many uniforms are on mannequins. The museum, including the new restroom facilities, is now handicapped-accessible.

The mission of the museum is to educate the public about and preserve the history of Freeman Army Airfield as a military training facility and foreign evaluation aircraft center during World War II.
