Safety Improvements for Marshfield Airport (GHG)
Marshfield Municipal Airport (GHG), also known as George Harlow Airfield, is a general aviation airport first established in 1948 when it was nothing more than a small farm with an airstrip out back. In fact, the current terminal building was once a barn! A portion of the original structure including its wooden ceiling beams were preserved when the building was later renovated, and can still be viewed inside today’s more modern facility.

In 2012, Bonus Depreciation is slated to drop to 50% -- however certain circumstances will also allow for 100% depreciation on 2012 tax returns if you act now.
