One Of The Last WWII Blimp Hangars Is Right Here In Texas And It’s So Worth A Visit
Texas is home to some pretty amazing war history, one piece of which is located in a tiny town where less than 7,000 people live. The Hitchcock Naval Air Station, located approximately 15 miles northwest of Galveston, is one of the country’s last remaining blimp hangars. Have you seen it?

Were you aware of this historical landmark hiding in Texas? It’s located just west of Highway 6 on FM 2004 and Blimp Base Blvd. Public visitation is discouraged, so you’ll have to view the hangar from your vehicle only.
