Named for airmail pilot Charles Ames who died flying in 1925, the county's first airfield began as an emergency stop on the transcontinental airmail route from New York - San Francisco which started in 1918. In 1924 a navigational beacon was installed. United Airlines began commercial service in 1934. A school and weather station were in operation. The field became obsolete by the 1940's.
