Readers who are relatively new to the community might be surprised to learn that the current site of the Grand Forks International Airport was not the first airport in the city. From the 1920s to the 1960s, the Grand Forks Airport was located just off of present day 42nd Street or just northwest of UND. The old airport terminal was saved and is now an office building located on 43rd Street. In the postcard, you can see 42nd Street running just behind the airport. Columbia Road and Highway 2 are in the background. The building you see in the distance is the State Mill and Elevator.
