Today'?s Lawrence County Airpark was known as the Huntington-Chesapeake Airport in 1938 when American Airlines inaugurated regular passenger service with DC-2 airliners and, later, DC-3s. American discontinued service at the airport in 1945, deeming it no longer adequate. Before World War II, there had been much talk of building a new, larger airport. But the war temporarily halted that discussion. The end of the war and the departure of American Airlines at Chesapeake, Ohio, gave new momentum to the idea of building a modern airport. The result was Tri-State Airport, which opened in 1952. Thanks to Jim Casto for the information. Date is unknown, but this photo was taken before the Nick J. Rahall Bridge was built in 1968.
