The National Trust endorsed a bill (HR 4199) introduced by Reps. Michael Turner (R-OH) and Brad Miller (D-NC) this week expanding the Dayton Aviation Heritage National Historic Park (DAHNHP) to include the Wright Company Factory buildings and Hawthorn Hill — the family home of Orville and Wilbur Wright until 1948.

The Wright Company Factor buildings in Dayton, Ohio, are the first American facilities specifically designed and built for the manufacture of airplanes. The Wright Brothers formed in the company in 1909 to manufacture airplanes after the historic first flight in 1903. Hawthorne Hill, completed in 1914 and listed in the National Register of Historic Places included many of the mechanical features designed by Orville which reflected his creative genius. In addition, for 34 years the house was a gathering place for the greats and near greats in the historic of American aviation. The inclusion of these sites into increase and complete the public’s ability to interpret and appreciate the contributions of the Wright Brothers in the larger context of the heritage park.
