Fairgrounds formerly known as Sullivan Memorial Airfield

For my story on abandoned airfields across the state I traveled to the former Sullivan Memorial Airport. The yellow X on the hard-surface runway remains. The old hangers are now food pavilions and storage. The airport closed in 1991 due to development around the short landing strip. The land is now the site of the city of Sullivan's fairgrounds. Most of the residents don't even realize that the road they walk on everyday is actually a runway. To the east, half of the runway is gone to make way for soccer fields and four baseball fields. Enjoy!
