You’ll find the answers in the newly published book Adair Diary written by Charline King, Adair Village’s first Mayor, along with Wanda Tobiassen and Judi Vedamuthu.
How did the land go from a WWII Army training base, to living quarters for post-veterans attending OSC, now OSU, noted as being the first Adair Village? During the Cold War it became Adair Air Force Station. Today it’s a quaint village with several businesses and a new growing Living History Museum. Adair Diary tells a of a unique new city that put the democratic process to work and came through the turbulent 70’s.
It’s an enjoyable and informative read.
