Previously, I told you about a great place to stay on your visit to the Outer Banks of North Carolina. I also told you about a nice little shopping center right on the water. Today, I’m going to tell you about our visit to the Wright Brothers Museum and National Monument.
The Wright Brothers, Wilbur and Orville, are credited for inventing, building, and flying the first airplane. The brothers moved to the Kitty Hawk area of North Carolina from Ohio to complete the project. When Wilbur and Orville were living in Dayton, Ohio, the city was a center for manufacturing and manufacturing growth. The brothers were in the right place at the right time to manage their own bicycle manufacturing business.
Wilbur and Orville drew upon their knowledge of bicycles to design their airplane. We didn’t take any photos as we made our way through the museum above but we did learn that the brothers were about much more than air planes. They were incredibly intelligent and gifted men. You can learn so much more about them, their family, their studies – just about anything you want to know about them here.
