In the late 1950s RL Letourneau built two small airstrips for his personal use. He donated those to the city in 1961. From that donation has grown one of the region's finest airports, the Toccoa -Stephens County Airport. After the comletion of the new terminal and addition of a state of the art weather tracking system, we are seeing further growth. Work is being done by Martin Grading of Toccoa and Drumond Construction of Thomaston, Georgia on two projects. A new hangar is being built and the taxi way is being expanded. Cudos to the Airport Authority for their work and progrssive thinking.
