Passenger and airmail services started from Dresser Field in 1928, the 168 acres were acquired for $82,175. It became the Municipal Airport in 1930 and was renamed Paul Cox Field in 1933. Cox was one of the first main promoters of the airfield but on June 23, 1932, Cox, aged 35, and 30-year-old passenger William Root were killed when Cox's private aircraft crashed at dusk in a field near Farmersburg. It was closed to air traffic in 1959 and the site is now part of Terre Haute South Vigo High School.
