Former PAFB airmen, workers to discuss ‘old’ and ‘new’ base

PLATTSBURGH — The Clinton County Historical Association and Museum will welcome a group of former airmen and employees from the Plattsburgh Air Force Base to discuss the history of the “new” and “old” sides of the former installation.

The discussion, led by Clinton County historian Dr. Anastasia Pratt and set for 2 p.m. Monday, March 31, is part of a project conducted by the museum’s junior docent group to gain a better understanding of the historic buildings situated around U.S. Oval. 

Funded in part by Clinton County and the Lake Champlain Basin Program, the event is open to the public. The museum is located at 98 Ohio Ave. 

For more information, call 561-0340 or email director@clintoncountyhistorical.org.

The program is funded in part by Clinton County and the Lake Champlain Basin Program.
