The Freeman Army Airfield Museum is dedicated to preserving, protecting, and displaying artifacts from the Freeman Army Airfield from its inception in 1942 until it was closed at the end of 1946. We hope that you have been inspired by this website and would like to help us preserve this piece of history about Seymour. There are three distinct ways that you can become personally engaged in this effort.
The Freeman Army Airfield Museum is run by a small group of volunteers who have created the exhibits, act as docents for museum visitors, and participate in community events. We take traveling exhibits to the county fair, drive our 1942 Ford/American LaFrance fire truck in parades, and give talks to schools, assisted living facilities, and other organizations, etc. We are always interested in talking to you about becoming a museum volunteer.
There are no special skills required to be a volunteer. We just need people who are willing to help on a part-time basis to keep this treasure a part of our community. If you wish to become a museum volunteer, please call the museum at (812) 271-1821, or stop by for a visit on Saturday morning.
