Oakwood Home of the Wright Brothers, Dayton, OH Photos

The Carillon Historical Park in Dayton, OH gives tours of the nearby Oakwood Museum House of the Wright Brothers. This Hawthorn Hill mansion (1914) designed by architect Schenck & Williams was only completed after the sudden death of Wilbur Wright, but Orville Wright nonetheless kept an empty bedroom for Wilbur. The house has been restored to as close to the original furnishings as possible. Historic figures such as Charles Lindburgh visited Orville at the Wright family home.
