The airport opened in September 1937. During World War II the airport was an auxiliary airfield for the United States Army Air Forces supporting the combat flight training at Greenville Army Airbase. Control of the airport was returned to local authorities in the fall of 1945. The Civilian Pilot Training for the Army Air Force was conducted there at the Anderson Airport and students from Clemson College participated in the flight training program.
Eastern Airlines stopped at AND from 1947 until 1964; Southern left in 1971-75.
