Wright Brothers National Memorial

On this cold and windy morning, the Wrights achieved the world's first controlled flights. Here, they realized not only their own dream—but also one of humanity's oldest dreams—to fly!

The boulder and numbered markers on the field in front of you mark the takeoff and landing spots of those four flights.
