  • Nice little hidden gem behind the visitor's center. Lots of historical info.
  • Gives you history about how first flight flown and where we are now... This is near kitty hawk visitor area. I am not sure why it is not in wright brother’s memorial as that memorial ground is really huge. There are 12-14 pillars and each pillar describe time line of first flight to first shuttle till now. History lovers would love this. It won’t take more than 15 minutes of yours so include this in your itinerary.
  • Nice monument to a great achievement. Too important to miss if you are in the area.
