Lots of unusual history exhibits here, including an early Wright Flyer. We strolled through this village and thoroughly enjoyed the visit.

We love history and had no idea that there was so much to learn about Dayton. The Historical Park is a gem and made for a great afternoon for us after having lunch at the Carillon Brewing Company.

Very well done history of Dayton and many corporations that started in Dayton. You will surprised to find how many "ideas" were developed in Dayton. Excellent movie with animation at the start of the tour in the main building... don't miss this! Make sure you check in all of the nooks and crannies.... nice display next to carousel about NCR...

It draws you in with the Carillon bell tower, but once you go inside and start looking at the reconstructed towns and the Wright Brothers information, you'll be glad you stopped in to see more. Lots of history here on the flood that devastated the area many years ago.

While visiting Dayton for the WGI competition, we checked tripadvisor for suggestions of things to do in between events. Based on the reviews we decided to check this out. So glad we did! Dayton has a rich history that is shared in this beautiful environment. The volunteers went above and beyond make this a special experience.

This is an awesome place to enjoy an afternoon. The village setup lets you stroll though a number of historic buildings and re-creations of Dayton history. That might sound kinda boring but it is not at all. Everyone knows about the Wright Brothers being from Dayton, and the Wright Flyer is fascinating to see, but there is so much more.... More
