Small correction: Dayton was A home for the Wright brothers. They also lived in other places and did their work in other places. What is now Kittyhawk, North Carolina is one. If one is really into the flying scene, visit the old hanger at the museum, catch a glimpse of their old engineering diary and walk the area they first flew their plane.
Dayton however is blessed with a replica of their old bicycle shop, remnants of McCook flying field and WPAFB.
Wanna read a fun book, read an autobiography of the Wright brothers. It starts from the time the boys were little living with their mom and preacher dad. Very entertaining and enlightening.
Who'd have believed that the boys shunned school because they were bored with it, found numerous ways to make money for candy and their projects, were taught the work ethic by their father and he allowed them to read his books. Learn what their inspiration was for flying machines and other things mechanical.
We owe a lot to them and their colleagues and contemporaries--the magnificent men in their flying machines.
Makes one wonder what they'd think today if they were around seeing medivac helicopters, commercial aircraft and the space program.(mercifully forget the military use)
