The Wright family home at 7 Hawthorn Street in west Dayton was where much of the creative thinking and planning behind the world’s first airplane took place. Wilbur and Orville added the shutters and built the wraparound porch. They resided at the Hawthorn Street house with their father and sister until Wilbur’s death in 1912.
