Paul Laurence Dunbar State Memorial, Dayton OH

April 29, 2018

4/27 FPaul Laurence Dunbar State Memorial, part of Dayton Aviation Heritage National Historical Park. Brad joined me this morning and we arrived a half hour before the home opened for tours. I had previously visited all of the other areas of the park in and around Dayton – Wright Cycle Company, Wright Company Factory, Wright Brothers Aviation Center, Hawthorn Hill, and Huffman Prairie Flying Field and Interpretive Center. So, now I’ve completed the whole enchilada. Of course, if you are in the area, you should visit the U.S. Air Force Museum as well.

Some information from the Visitor Center

Dunbar went to Central HS with Orville and was friends with the Wright Brothers

We had an interesting tour of the Dunbar home. Unfortunately for us, Dunbar died of TB at age 34.

It was a short drive over to the Wright-Dunbar Interpretive Center and Aviation Trail Visitor Center

The Aviation Trail Parachute Museum is located on the second floor of the Aviation Trail Visitor Center

Right next door is the Wright Cycle Company – part of Dayton Aviation Heritage National Historical Park
