The century-old stone farmhouse at the heart of the 9-acre estate that Paul and Audrey Poberezny purchased in 1991, and where the EAA founder lived until his death in 2013, is not far from Wittman Regional Airport, home of EAA AirVenture. There have been many visitors over the years, aviation luminaries and leaders among them, and the artifacts and photographs Poberezny left behind offer an insight into his lifelong passion, the origin and growth of EAA, and events that helped shape the aviation world we know today.

This is where Paul built airplanes, read about aviation history, and wrote countless letters and articles,” Aircraft Spruce noted in a news release, adding that the company has maintained a relationship with EAA for more than 50 years, and has partnered with EAA “to make this historic home available to EAA members and aviation enthusiasts in the years ahead.”

Those interested in visiting are advised to contact EAA for more information.
