Marion Municipal Airport
In 1945, the citizens of Marion approved a $10,000 bond issue which was used to purchase 160 acres of ground and to construct buildings. An Airport Board was appointed by the Marion City Commission and is still an intricate part of the airport operation.
In 2005 the City of Marion applied for and recieved a grant to complete $100,000.00 worth of upgrades to the airport which included resurfacing the runway, resurfacing the taxiway, new airplane tie down area and new runway lights.
The Airport is located two miles southeast of Marion and less that a mile from the Marion County Lake.
