WASP Museum

"The National WASP WWII Museum educates and inspires all generations with the story of Women Airforce Service Pilots who forever changed the course of women in aviation.

In 2003, WASP Deanie Parrish, her daughter Nancy and a group of Sweetwater citizens presented to the Sweetwater City Council plans for a Museum to preserve the legacy of the Woman Airforce Service Pilots who trained at Avenger Field.

The National WASP WWII Museum opened in 2005 in a hangar built in 1929 that served as the Sweetwater Municipal Airport.

From 2011-2016, the Museum planned and raised funds for an expansion that doubled the size of the Museum’s complex at Avenger Field. November 2016 saw groundbreaking for Hangar No 1, modeled after the original that burned down March 20, 1951. In advance of Homecoming 2017, the Museum held a ribbon cutting and flag raising ceremony."
