After visiting Kill Devil Hills last fall, we were interested in more about the Wright Brothers. The museum explains some the next steps they took to patent and expand on their initial invention. Very informative exhibits.

This is a very neat, secluded piece of history. It's not hard to get to, but it's location has kept it from being developed. As a result, you're seeing pretty much the same field the Wright Brothers used. Pretty cool.

There is so much history here. There are plaques all over with the history of the field, and the local flora. Part of the road gets closed off if the skeet range is open. You need a couple hours to walk through the field and...More

A must see place to complete your understanding of the early days of flight,... you can actually see the area they flew around.

Everything you ever wanted to know about the start of aviation and the Wright brothers. An interpretive center, a visitors center, monuments and historical fields. Everything is well maintained and there are lots of signs and plaques. Get a map at the visitor center!

Follow the signs on 444 to access WPAFB. We did not need to pass through security to get to the field. If you follow all the signs, you will get to a parking lot. However, once on the base if you are on Hebble Creek...More
