Municipal Airport (former) – Roswell NM

Description

"Roswell was one of four New Mexico cities designated to have an art center. The current Roswell Museum and Art Center, built in 1937, was known as the Federal Art Center. The original building has been incorporated into all the remodeling and additions since then. Cahoon Park was built in 1936 and another sunken garden planted. The old Municipal Airport, now the Unity Center for Teens, is another example of WPA funds put to good use."

    Old Roswell Municipal Airport is no longer the Unity Center. It has been vacant for probably two years, and is now being seriously considered for demolition.
    I would like to know when it was built, or became operational
