Wright Brothers National Memorial [NC]

"Wind, sand, and a dream of flight brought Wilbur and Orville Wright to Kitty Hawk, North Carolina where, after four years of experimentation, they achieved the first successful airplane flights in 1903. With courage and perseverance, these self-taught engineers relied on teamwork and application of the scientific process. What they achieved changed our world forever." The Wright Brothers National Memorial is located in the Kill Devil Hills dunes on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, and features a 60 foot pylon that marks the location of the first flight as well as a visitor center which offers full scale reproductions of the Wright flying machines as well as additional exhibits and educational programs.

The site offers visitor information, historical information, an online bookstore, and information regarding the educational programs offered by the visitor center. In order to contact the park by email, use the "contact us" link located on the left side of the webpage.
