McClennan Air Force Base

McClennan near North Highlands was originally established as a maintenance facility for military aircraft in 1935. At that time, it was known as the Pacific Air Depot and the Sacramento Air Depot. After a while it was named for Major Hazekiah McClennan.  It went through several more name changes through the years, but the McClennan name stuck.  By 1993 the base was chosen for closure and was turned into the Aerospace Museum of California.  It’s a very interesting museum.
