In 1979 Miller Brewing, now Molson Coors, purchased the former Turner Air Field in Albany, Georgia to build their southeastern plant to produce Miller Beer products.
Recognizing the historical significance of their southeastern plant's home as a former Army Air Base, Miller decided to research the history of Turner Field.
Knowing that Miller was interested, and wanting to do something for this corporation that has done so much and meant so much to the quality of life for citizens in Albany and southwest Georgia, a group of community leaders organized themselves to conduct the research on Turner Field and to prepare the material in such a manner that Miller could present the historical facts on the Internet. It is the community leaders' way of saying "Thank You" to Miller Brewing Company, now Molson Coors, for all that they have given to the Albany community over the years.
