Dale Mabry Army Air Field Museum

$3,175 of $100,000 goal

Raised by 28 people in 10 months

Tallahassee's Dale Mabry Army Air Field was a major airbase, training over 8,000 fighter pilots including Chinese, British and French pilots AND the original Tuskegee Airmen during World War II.  Yet today, the airbase has all but disappeared and there is no museum where Tallahasseans or history-minded tourists can learn about the major contributions this airbase made towards the war effort, both on the homefront and the warfront, or the way the base forever changed Tallahassee and the State of Florida through its many socio-economic impacts. 

Our goal is to create an educational complex on former airbase property using original, reclaimed structures still in existence in and around Tallahassee.  This mini-installation will be used to take visitors, including school children on field trips, on an experiential journey back in time to learn about WWII, the Army Air Corp, Tallahassee's unique story during mobilization both on the homefront and the warfront--and  America's "Greatest Generation".


Dale Mabry Army Air Field  Museum, Inc. is a Florida non-profit with IRS 501(c)3 status

VISION:  To create a museum complex where people of all ages leave inspired and changed by their visit experience.  

MISSION: To bring the values of our honored past into the present, in preparation for our shared future.

The holiday season of Hanukkah, Christmas, and the New Year is challenging for deployed military personnel, including the men and women stationed at Tallahassee's Dale Mabry Army Air Field. The song's words, "I'll be home for Christmas, if only in my dreams" took on a special meaning since for many it was their first holiday spent away. In fact, that song was written in 1943 and recorded by Bing Crosby as an ode to our service men and women.

So as we remember those soldiers of Tallahassee's past, here is wishing all our troops everywhere and you the joy of family, the gift of friends, and the best of everything for the New Year--even if only in your dreams.
 
Season's Greetings!

The story of WWII and Tallahassee's Dale Mabry Army Air Field is not complete with the unique stories of defense activities from the home front. Lively Vo-Tech was critical to training civilian workers for jobs at the airbase. Learn more at www.facebook.com/DMAAFTally/

Very cool. I had wondered if they had a connection to Dale Mabry. I've also wondered what happened to all the buildings that used to dot Hull Dr. I believe there is one remaining down the street from McCollum Hall.
