The Geneva Historical Society is searching for information and memorabilia associated with the Scenic Airport located on Route 14 in Geneva the late 1940s and early 50s. The airport was located at Glass Factory Bay on Seneca Lake near the current Bayview Heights. Used for small planes often flown by World War II veteran aviators, plans were developed to turn the small airport into a larger facility and seaplane port, but this never happened.
A gathering for those associated with the airport or with memories to share will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. on May 28, in the Hucker Gallery at the Geneva Historical Society. There will be displays, refreshments and information-gathering stations where people can reminisce, meet old friends and help the Society enhance its archives on aviation. For more information, please call 789-5151.
The Geneva Historical Society Museum is located in the Prouty-Chew House at 543 South Main Street and is open Tuesday through Friday, 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Saturday 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. Admission is free.
