Emily Warner Field Aviation Museum

The Emily Warner Field Aviation Museum opened in July 2015. Located in the former Rocky Mountain Airways airline terminal of Granby/Grand County Airport, the museum’s displays, photographs and artifacts tell the fascinating stories of aviation history in Grand County.

History

Although the Emily Warner Field Aviation Museum is GCHA's newest museum, it holds a tremendous amount of rich history. 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, who 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. In addition to these displays, the museum is adding artifacts and stories weekly to the exhibits. Please contact The Emily Warner Field Aviation Museum to add your aviation story, photos or artifacts!
