New signs welcome visitors to Freeman Airfield Museum

The Freeman Army Airfield Museum has announced the installation of new signs welcoming visitors.

Museum officials say that the new signs are the result of a year’s worth of planning and teamwork to replace the original signs, which suffered deterioration from weather and age. They note that the Greater Seymour Trust Fund generously funded the Westwind Sign-produced signs, while visitor donations paid for the installation materials. Officials with the museum add that the museum benefited from the United Fund’s “Day of Caring” event, as participants with the Housing Partnership installed the signs.

The Freeman Army Airfield Museum is a non-profit organization which relies on the generosity of the Airport Authority, the City of Seymour, visitors and foundations to further its mission to preserve World War II artifacts and to educate visitors about the role that the airfield played in local and national history.
