Opened in 2007 and located near Route 360 at St. Paul's Crossroads, this airport replaced the former Tappahannock Municipal Airport (FAA LID: W79) which was located near the intersection of Route 17 & Airport Road.
Ground was broken for the airport in 2005. The flight strip was paid for by local tax payers and a federal grant, replacing Tappahannock Municipal Airport which was abandoned following the opening of Tappahannock–Essex County Airport.
