Did You Know That?
#1  Did you know that Portville had an airport?!  Well, an article from our
files dated Saturday, April 13, 1946 confirms it.  Here are three photos of
Lee Layton and his flying operation and the article below.  You can read
more about Lee in our World War II book,
Portville Goes to War.
