Over the winter, we have been making some changes to the proposed building plans for the new Kelch Aviation Museum. Our architect is a good friend of the museum and understands what we want to build to showcase our collection and provide a center of activity for Brodhead Airport functions, as well as educational and archive facilities.
The plans shown here represent the third revision to the basic design, which now features a large, west-facing hangar door and an enlarged area for automobile and artifact display.
As you can see, the building fills out our property east & west, but provides room for future expansion to the north. A large meeting space for EAA Chapter 431 is on the south side to facilitate large gatherings during the many fly-ins at Brodhead Airport throughout the year.
Of course, the building comes at a price and we will be launching a capital fundraising campaign to help with the construction of the building very soon. Stay tuned for information!
