1929

-
Ernest Woodward donated 160 acres of land for an airport in 1929. The airport was dedicated on November 7, 1929 as the most modern airfield in the Southeast. Activated on 22 March 1941, Woodward Field was used by the Army Air Forces Flying Training Command. Flight training ended on 4 August 1944 and afterwards the airfield returned to civil control. There is no evidence showing that the U.S. Army gave the field its own Army designation since training was led by a contractor.

It was said to have 2 sod runways: a 2,100' northwest/southeast strip, and an 1,800' northeast/southwest strip. It was evidently abandoned in 1988.
