Gallatin Airport

In 1934, plans were being considered for the construction of an airport in Gallatin. The government’s allotment for the money under the C.W.A. would pay for 80% of the labor costs and 20% of the cost of the materials. Materials included were: paint, boundary markers, fencing, seeding and miscellaneous.

The city had to either buy or lease ground for the airport. The plot of ground necessary for its construction were: two runways each having a width of 500 feet and a length of 3,000 feet. The mean slope of the land needed, wasn’t to exceed two percent. The field was to either be L-shaped or T-shaped.

It was reported on one week early in July, the C.C.C. boys were busy with projects which included working on the landing field in Alley bottom(?????).

(To me this confirms that Gallatin did have an airport.)
