Whitford’s Airport was founded in 1950 by Joe Whitford. Joe, who operated a dairy farm and had learned to fly, carved a small grass runway out of the farm fields for his Piper J-3. It wasn’t long before other local pilots were asking to keep their aircraft here. Hangars soon sprouted, the runway was lengthened, a second runway was built, and a small building was dedicated to a clubhouse and airport office.
The airport continued to be improved throughout the years. More hangars were built and more are scheduled to be built, the office was replaced with a more modern structure and in the early 1960’s our “Famous Pancake Breakfasts” were conceived.

The original turf runway still remains and the airport is still owned by the Whitford Family.
