"First Flight" Lunar Module
The first man on the moon, astronaut Neil Armstrong, took off in a Ford Tri-Motor airplane, better known as a Tin Goose, for the first time in his life in Warren on July 26, 1936. He was six years old. The location was the Warren Airways Airport that sat not too far from US Route 422 in Warren.
Thirty-three years later on July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong became the first man to walk on the moon.
Today, a half-scale replica of Apollo 11's lunar landing module, which is nearly 13 feet tall and 12 feet wide and weighing about two tons, sits on cratered concrete resembling the moon's surface commemorating both "firsts" in Neil Armstorng's life.
