Dayton Aviation Heritage National Historical Park commemorates three important historical figures—Wilbur Wright, Orville Wright, and poet Paul Laurence Dunbar—and their work in the Miami Valley. The park is a cooperative effort between the National Park Service and several partners.
The sites are: The Wright Cycle Company Complex in Dayton; Huffman Prairie Flying Field within Wright-Patterson Air Force Base; The Wright Brothers Aviation Center at Carillon Historical Park; The Paul Laurence Dunbar State Memorial in Dayton; and Hawthorn Hill, the 1914-1948 residence of Orville Wright.
Dayton Aviation Heritage National Historical Park is located within the National Aviation Heritage Area, an eight-county region in Ohio established as a National Heritage Area by Congress in 2004.
