It’s shaping up to be a big week for aviation-history lovers in Dayton. Events kicked off Monday morning with a visit from the grandson of aviation pioneer Charles Lindbergh to Hawthorn Hill. The Oakwood house was home to the Wright Brothers until the late 1940s.
In June of 1927, large crowds gathered at Hawthorn Hill to see transatlantic flight pioneer Charles Lindbergh. Lindbergh made a surprise stop at the Wright family home just one month after his record-setting solo nonstop flight from New York to Paris.
