As curators of his birthsite, our mission is to educate the public by preserving and interpreting the life, family, and achievements of Wilbur Wright.  You may be wondering where did Wilbur Wright grow up? Or how did the Wright brothers become interested in flight?


You can discover the answers to these questions and more with a visit to the Wilbur Wright Birthplace in East Central Indiana.
