Rhinelander Airport Map

Rhinelander Airport Map | Map or Atlas | Wisconsin Historical Society
Map of Oneida County-Rhinelander Airport which was laid out at the county fairgrounds. The map appears on the reverse side of a letter Roy Larson received from the Rhinelander airport managers. The entire pink area, they noted, "is smooth, hard, free from all obstructions and suitable for landing or taking off in any direction." The airport management also reminded potential users: "Official government statistics, in both Europe and the United States, show that there are less accidents, in proportion to the number of persons carried, in air travel than in auto travel. This letter appears in the records of the Larson Brothers Airport housed in the Historical Society's area research center at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh.
