Moon Island Airport, or Bowerman Field, as we know it today, has been around since the 1940s and has had many changes in its history.
In 1942, in the middle of World War II, the United States Army granted funds to expand then Moon Island Airport. Then in 1946, after World War II was over, Robert Bowerman, who was a fighter pilot during the war, returned home and formed Western Washington Airways and worked hard with his company to promote Moon Island Airport.
In 1953, Robert Bowerman was honored for his work at Bowerman, and his service to his country as Moon Island Airport was renamed Bowerman Field Airport. In the 1950s, Bowerman Field was owned by Grays Harbor County, but the Port of Grays Harbor did give money on occasion to aid in the upkeep of the Airport. By 1962 ownership of Bowerman Field would change as the Port of Grays Harbor took over full ownership and operation of Bowerman Field from Grays Harbor County at the first of the year.
