Group pushing for new military museum at Felts Field | Community Spirit
An effort to a bring a first class museum honoring military veterans is now closer to becoming reality.
The group pushing for the museum was formerly named Armed Forces and Aerospace Museum Society. They have unanimously voted to change their name to Honor Point Military and Aerospace Museum.
The group hopes to get the muesum built at Felts Field Airport in east Spokane. The museum hopes to provide a meaningful and quality historical military and aerospace experience.
Honor Point has also formed a new partnership with Felts Field and the Spokane Airport Board. For the first time, the museum has control over property it hopes to build on, which is important to supporters and potential funders.
The museum will hopefully become the anchor tenant in the proposed Felts Field capital improvement plan. The plans are designed to redevelop and revitalize Felts Field and the entire east Spokane neighborhood surrounding the airfield.
Honor Point expects to launch a formal capital campaign early next year.
