DescriptionThe Wilbur Wright Birthplace pays tribute to a man who rose from obscure beginnings in Indiana to become one of the world's great inventors. Whit his younger brother, Orville, Wilbur Wright cut through centuries of myth and miscalculation to bring man's centuries-old dream of flight to reality. In the museum visitors can relive the historic moment when Orville took his turn at the controls. It was December 17, 1903, at 10:35 a.m. The engine was started, the securing rope was slipped, the plane moved forward, and after a 40-foot run along the rail, the flimsy craft rose slowly into the air. In the words of Wilbur, "The age of flight had come at last!"
