As reflected by our mission statement below, the Moffett Field Historical Society is dedicated to education about and preservation of the heritage of one of Northern California’s most significant historic sites … Moffett Field. This section tells the Society’s story: our history, how you can contribute to helping us achieve our mission through membership and/or donations, keeping informed through our Sparrowhawk newsletter, and the services — Library, docent tours, speakers, and more — that we provide.​
We recognize Moffett Field’s namesake, Rear Admiral William Moffett, who lost his life in the crash of the Macon’s sister ship, the dirigible Akron. ​In December 1915 Moffett received the Medal of Honor for his captaincy of the USS Chester in a daring and dangerous night landing in 1914 at Veracruz, Mexico. His Medal of Honor is on display at the museum for those interested in taking a look!
