Historic Space Systems is an exhibit manufacturing and consulting company with headquarters in Danville, Ohio. It was started in 1990 by its president, John Fongheiser, in the interest of providing realistic and historically accurate spacecraft exhibits for museums.
He began by building the Space Shuttle Flight Station exhibit as a company funded project to demonstrate the capabilities of Historic Space Systems.
We provide consultation, design, and fabrication services for exhibits of US manned spacecraft, and similar vehicles. Our specialties include detailed control
panel and control mechanism reproductions.
We also provide interactive multimedia systems to supplement any exhibit, consult on aerospace subjects, and provide computer aided drafting services.
Although the company is principally Mr. Fongheiser, other engineers, technicians, and educators assist as needed.
