Prior to the invasion of the Republic of Korea by the North Korean communists in 1950 the area consisted of several tiny farming villages near the hillsides and a large number of rice paddy areas where the runway now lies. A large ginko tree marked the village square of one of these villages and still stands on a hill in the base golf course.
