Originally called Hulman Field, the airport dates back to 1943 when ground was broken on a convert|638|acre|km2|sing=on site donated to the city of Terre Haute by businessman Anton "Tony" Hulman, Jr. The airport was dedicated on October 3, 1944 and consisted of three runways, taxiways, apron area, and a terminal building. In 1953, a new terminal building and control tower was completed and the apron area expanded. Since 1954, the
181st Intelligence Wingof the Indiana Air National Guardhas been stationed at the airport.
In 1976, the city of Terre Haute and Vigo County jointly formed an authority to manage the airport. The Terre Haute International Airport Authority has six members, with three members appointed by the Mayor of Terre Haute and three members appointed by the Vigo County Commissioners. The terminal building was expanded in 1977 and 1981. In 1998, the Airport's name was changed from Hulman Regional Airport to Terre Haute International Airport - Hulman Field.
Since 2002, Hulman Field has been host to the Terre Haute Air Fair. Distinguished performers at the fair have included the
USAF Thunderbirds, the Red Baron Pizza Squadron, and Michael Hunter, the world's only insulin-dependent aerobatics pilot. The Air Fair is run almost entirely by volunteers, but also by community and school organizations looking for fundraising opportunities.
