The WACO Aircraft Company was the largest manufacturer of civil aircraft in the country in the late 1920’s and early 30’s and this museum is dedicated to the plant and the employees that made it great.
With the help of the WACO Historical Society (founded in 1978) members and many generous donors and supporters, Historic WACO Field opened in 1997. The field consists of a 100 acre site and features a 2200 foot runway (2000 feet usable) south of Troy, Ohio. In 1997, the first building to be erected on WACO Field was an historic 1856 barn relocated to the premises in a traditional barn raising. The second building project on WACO Field was the 7500 sq ft hangar which became home to the WACO Aircraft Museum, Research Library, Classroom/Conference Room, Gift Shop and Museum Offices. The Willis Wing, built in 2006, is home to more vintage WACO aircraft and displays and showcases the history of the WACO Aircraft Company.
Historic WACO Field also has a radio-controlled aircraft flying field located on site which is home to the WACO Barnstormers RC Club. We have a separate runway and shelter in place specifically designed to accommodate RC Aircraft.
