National Aviation Heritage Area

The National Aviation Heritage Area is a federally designated National Heritage Area consolidating more than fifteen aviation-related sites in the Dayton, Ohio area into a cooperative marketing and administrative framework. The National Heritage Area is centered on the activities of the Wright Brothers and their workshop at the Dayton Aviation Heritage National Historical Park, itself composed of several sites.[1]

Major features of the Heritage Area include the Wright State University, Woodland Cemetery and Arboretum, the Greene County Historical Society and local visitor centers.[2]

The National Aviation Heritage Area was authorized in 2004[3] and is administered by the National Aviation Heritage Alliance.
