Poplar Grove Vintage
Wings & Wheels Museum


Dedicated to transportation history spanning between the years of 1903 – 1957, our museum is located on the Poplar Grove Airport (C77) in northern Illinois and features 12 acres of land that are occupied by several early 20th century airplane hangars and automotive garages. Our buildings have been saved from destruction and relocated to our campus where they have been renovated for future generations to enjoy. Our mission focuses not only on preserving history, but also educating people and future generations on the history of wings and wheels.
