Aviation Memorial

 A news story can be found below about the Aviation Memorial that was recently installed on the site of the former Columbia Army Airbase. This memorial was championed by one of Springdale's longtime residents: Mr. Harold Jones. Mr. Jones raised over $15,000 for the creation of the memorial honoring 230 aviators who died at the airbase during WWII.
