  • Love this place! It's a little hard to find but calling ahead and asking a Ranger for directions is very helpful. Nice place to eat your lunch (there are 6 picnic tables), see history (5 burial mounds, Wright Memorial and Visitor Center), and nature!
  • A wonderful tribute to the Wright Bros and Paul Laurence Dunbar. Much to see and much to learn.
  • There are plenty of interactive displays, including a difficult to master flight simulator. There is a plethora of information on the Wright's and early flight.
  • Must see part of our history.
  • Great view from the Wright Bros Memorial area
