Enlisted Men's Club at Mitchel Field
The Enlisted Men's Club at Mitchel Field, or Mitchel Air Force Base in Garden City. Mitchel Field was home to a number of Air Force units including a number of fighter groups, and was in use from 1918 to 1961. After the Air Force turned over possession of the property to Nassau County the land was redeveloped and today hosts a number of things including the Long Island Children's Museum and the Cradle of Aviation Museum.
