Yet another Wright Brothers site visited

We found ourselves driving through Dayton, Ohio on I-70 Sunday, so I couldn't resist the urge to see Huffman Prairie, where the Wright Brothers tested airplanes where, according to Wikipedia, the brothers "made about 150 flights at the field in 1904–1905, leading to development of the 1905 Wright Flyer III, which they considered to be the first practical airplane."

The Wright's leased the property outside Dayton so they could take the streetcar out to the site.

Replica's of their workshop and the catapult they used to get the planes in the air are onsite.
