Additional Details:
The Wright Memorial, of North Carolina granite, is mounted on top of the principal dune of Kill Devil Hills, where Wilbur and Orville Wright experimented with their glider. On December 17, 1903, near the food of this hill, they successfully flew their plane under its own power, the first flight of a heavier-than-air machine ever made by man. At night the beacon from the tower may sweep across four-mile-wide Roanoke Sound from the Birthplace of Aviation to the Birthplace of the Nation
