A BRIEF HISTORY

In July 1942, the United States Army Air Forces acquired land and constructed Temple Army Airfield. It served as a basic flying school and later became a hub for multi-engine transition training and combat crew assembly. After World War II, the airfield was turned over to the City of Temple and renamed Draughon–Miller in honor of two Temple fliers who lost their lives in the war.

As the City of Temple took over, the former site of Temple Municipal Airport was repurposed. Initially, it served as a landfill before transforming into a planned industrial area.
