Prop Wash Tavern

at Aero Park

A December 2004 photo by Bill Schlafer of "the remains of the restaurant/clubhouse/bar.

Bill Schlafer reported in December 2004, "Sometime in early December the operations were closed & the field was plowed up. I have not been able to find out why the airport was closed or if the plowing was done in preparation for planting crops or to discourage any attempted landings. It was never listed for sale, and its closure didn't even make the local news."
