Construction of MacArthur Field, a WWII military project, began in 1942. The cover photo shows a hill behind the Arthur and Irene (Grover) Hill home that needed to be removed. Below are two photos taken from the same spot as the hill is in process of being removed. After that is a photo of Arthur (1909 - 1986) and Irene (1911 -1994) Hill's home that is no longer there either.
The bottom two photos of the airport under construction in 1942 are from the Merusi Archives at the Rutland Herald.
It is now known as Rutland Southern Regional Airport.
