The Patterson Homestead is a historic house museum in Dayton, Ohio. It was built in 1816 by American Revolutionary War veteran Colonel Robert Patterson. At present time, the museum has six rooms containing period artifacts and original Patterson family artifacts. Robert Patterson's grandsons, John Henry Patterson and Frank Jefferson Patterson, lived in the house as young children, and would eventually go on to found the National Cash Register Company (now NCR Corporation) in 1884.
Dayton History also operates Carrillon Historical Park, a large museum complex that focuses on the city's role as an industrial hub in the 19th and 20th centuries. The park has exhibits about NCR as well as the Wright Brothers, who also lived and worked in the city.
