  • Huffman Prairie is one of those sites that is significant not because of what is there, but because of what happened there. This large, empty field is the world's first airport! The visitor center...

  • This was the last site for the Wright Brothers I had remaining in the Dayton area. The interpretive center was small, but extremely informative. It is a short drive away from the actual field, but...

  • Excellent presentation about the Wright's and early history of flying. I recommend seeing the 30 minute film first and then the exhibits. Give yourself a couple of hours. The memorial is just outside.
  • Came here twice today. My number 6 stop drom the Wilbear Challenge has to have 8 of 17 to get it and I came back after the Airforce museum. Got 2 cancellation stamps there. The visitor Center is nice has a small gift shop, nice exhibit and manned by two nice park. Wright Brother Memorial across the VC. You can walk to overlook where you see the runway of the Patterson airbase on the right and the wright practice prarie on the left.
