Perrin Air Force Base Museum, Denison, TX - YouTube - FunPlacesToFly.com

We had a great time visiting the Perrin Air Force Base Museum at the North Texas Regional-Perrin Airport in Denison Texas. Jim Farris, a World War II veteran, was kind enough to give us an informative and interesting tour of this great historical museum. The Perrin Field Historical Society was chartered and registered as a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of the history of Perrin Army Airfield and Perrin Air Force Base located in Grayson County Texas. The purpose is to research, record and preserve the history of Perrin Field during thirty years of operating as an active military installation 1941 through 1971. Perrin Air Force Base Historical Museum is located at 436 McCullum Avenue, the first intersection after entering North Texas Regional Airport-Perrin Field from State Highway 691 west on to Grayson Drive. Turn left on McCullum Avenue south. Museum is on the corner of Grayson Drive and McCullum Avenue on your right. No admission fee. However, donations are appreciated.
