Live the Legacy



The world's aviation story is not complete without experiencing Dayton, the Birthplace of Aviation. Here, in what is now the Wright-Dunbar Business District, two young innovators, Wilbur and Orville Wright, dreamed they could overcome the limitations of the earth. And they did. Here, one brave visionary, author and poet laureate Paul Laurence Dunbar a childhood friend of the Wrights, dreamed he could transcend the color boundaries imposed on him by society. And he succeeded.
