Westminster airport began on a small farm field in a community along an old American Indian trail. The town was never in the direct path of commerce or early settlement, but it provided an abundance of needed local commodities; farm produce, livestock from hundreds-of-acres crops, for a growing Baltimore metropolitan area. Eventually the airport was the center of its own growing community - Carroll County is now a major supplier of local and regional produce.
A small airfield in a farmer's pastures soon it was dedicated by the Mayor of Westminster as a viable link to a growing nation, but little did anyone believe World conflict would push its development in a completely different directions. It was the onset of a World War when it first served the military to transport troops and later to forward supplies across both the Pacific and Atlantic Ocean.
