A front porch façade on the empty lot which once held the home of Wilber and Orville Wright

7 Hawthorne Street, Dayton, Ohio served as the home of Wilbur and Orville Wright as they solved the challenges of controlled flight. Today, the actual house resides at Henry Ford’s Museum in Dearborn, MI. This image captures the original lot of the home which sat a block away from their famous bicycle shop but holds a recreation of their front porch tied to a famous photograph of the brothers. As the Wright Brothers became successful, they erected a new home called Hawthorn Hill in the southern part of Dayton.
