I went to the cemetery to have a look around and left pretty quickly. I saw the Wright Brother's stone heads and stood at the over look of Dayton. Not much to do here. I did notice people running. It's pretty hilly so I bet you could get a great work out here. I would only stop by if its... More

While "attraction" may not be the correct term, this cemetery with it's hilly topology and wonderful view of the surrounding country side, is a wonderful peaceful place to walk and contemplate.

It never would have occurred to me to rate a cemetery as an "attraction", but Woodland is one of my favorite places to just walk, think, and enjoy the surroundings. I've never taken an actual tour of Woodland, but as I recall maps are available to help visitors find the various historic graves located throughout the cemetery. As others have... More

Woodland is absolutely the most beautiful cemetery. If you are in Dayton and love cemeteries it is a definite must visit. I love how peaceful it is even though it has city surrounding it. It was started back in the mid 1800s so designated historic and there are many notable people buried there.

Visit the final resting place of many of Dayton's notable residents in this lovely setting. Stop at the office on your drive in (building on the right) and pick up a map. Also, get a stamp in your Aviation Trail passport for you free Wilbear Wright teddy bear. No purchase required.

Atop a hill overlooking the city of Dayton. It is a great place for an afternoon stroll. Many of Dayton's major figures are busried here including the Wright Brothers and Paul Laurence Dunbar.

I asked for help in finding a friend's grave. I got printed maps all highlighted. Go see the Tiffany windows and the Tiffany tile floor in the former chapel.
