Emily Warner Field Aviation Museum
The airport building at 1023 County Road 610 in Granby was the original airline terminal for Rocky Mountain Airways (RMA). Built in 1973, it notably is modeled after the Vail Bell Tower. The RMA terminal was built by the Dell Webb Corporation which also developed the Innsbruck/Silver Creek Ski Area of Granby. Many historic artifacts and information about Emily Warner are on display. In 1976, Warner became America’s first, female airline captain. She also developed Ouray Ranch on the Colorado River near Granby, and lived in Grand County for over 25 years.
One notable exhibit in the award-winning, free museum is the Granby Airport Pioneers Wall of Fame. The Wall honors local citizen volunteers who in the 1940s began the airport and continued to volunteer their time and talent to improve and maintain the community airport.
Open in the summer from May 29th to September 5th.
