95th Bombardment Group Museum - the McKnight Building
The McKnight building is a recently constructed addition housing the fireproof archive room as well as computer and conference room. It was opened by members of the McKnight family in September 2014. The museum exhibits are housed in the restored non-commissioned officers' social club on the former Communal site 2 of RAF Horham, which was an active airfield during WW2.
RAF Horham (USAAF Station 119)

RAF Horham is located to the south-east of Eye and straddles the parishes of Denham, Horham, Redlingfield and Hoxne. Built for the Royal Air Force (RAF) it was one of the earliest heavy bomber bases opened in East Anglia. In 1942, the base was handed over to the United States Army Air Forces (USAAF) and designated Station 119. The aerodrome's history and a number of original buildings are preserved at two local museums - the 95th Bomb Group Hospital Museum > LinkExternal link and the nearby 95th Bomb Group Museum > LinkExternal link.
