Local History

The original Weaverville airport, located on the location of the current golf course, was completed in July, 1928. The report in the Trinity Journal read "Airport is Completed -- The Weaverville airport is completed, according to reports given out by the chamber of commerce committee in charge. The ground is in fine condition, having been scraped to a nicety. All the large rocks have been removed. The airport committee tried to make arrangements for a plane to land here on the Fourth, but was not successful. The dimensions of the field are 400 by 1800 feet. "

The current airport was built in 1956.
