The Hagerstown Aviation Museum’s goal of preserving local aviation history is well under way. The downtown Hagerstown display at Discovery Station contains not only exhibits that chronicle the development of Hagerstown aviation but also serves as the collection site for research materials and local aviation memorabilia. While museum members continue to develop exhibits, conduct research and collect memorabilia, they are also planning to identify and document aviation sites in and around Hagerstown. Make sure to go check out their website for updates and upcoming events!
The Hagerstown Aviation Museum, Inc. is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to the preservation and promotion of the region’s more than 90 years of extraordinary aviation history.
