The Spartanburg Municipal Airport opened in 1927. The Civil Works Administration graded the field, erected two runways and completed a new lighting system in 1933-1934. Work was noted to be started by 22 December 1933 and was to be completed by 15 February 1934.
A Spartanburg Herald 1933 article noted that the city sought out an appropriation of $200,000 for the improvement program.
