The folks at Greenville Downtown Airport in South Carolina sure know how to throw a party. As part of the city’s History Alive Festival, “Amelia Earhart” — played by Leslie Goddard, a historian and actress from Chicago — returned to the airport for the first time since November 1931 and handed the keys to the city by Mayor Knox White.

Amelia Earhart and Greenville Mayor Knox White talk to the crowd that came out to Greenville Downtown Airport for the 1930s celebration.

As part of the festivities, the folks at nearby Triple Tree Aerodrome provided a 1929 Golden Eagle Chief – one of only two known to be still flying in the world – for Amelia’s arrival

Amelia at GMU4

The Upcountry History Museum and Greenville Chautauqua had Amelia Earhart stories and 1930s Greenville photos on display in the Runway Cafe’s hangar. Volunteers from Chautauqua hosted 1930s games and a 1930s costume contest with prizes donated by local businesses.

Rhodes, Wills and Rhys Johnson dressed the part and welcomed "Amelia Earhart" when she Revisted Greenville last Saturday at the Greenville Downtown Airport.
