It’s always been known as Space City, but do you know of Houston’s historic history of flying below 40,000 feet?
Tucked away at the west end of Hobby Airport in southeast Houston is the 1940 Air Terminal Museum, a collection and narrative of Houston aviation history in the very rooms where it has begin. In a rare gesture for the city that likes to demolish its vestiges of yesteryear, the building is now listed in the National Register of Historic Places. The designation helps preserve the building and allows the museum to benefit from certain tax exemptions, as well as open up more funding opportunities.
