Wright Brothers National Memorial at the NC Outer Banks
The Wright Brothers National Memorial stands tall at the top of Kill Devil Hill in Kill Devil Hill at the North Carolina Outer Banks. The 60-ft tall granite monument was built to commemorate the work and first flight of a powered machine by Wilbur and Orville Wright. In the early 1900s the two brothers traveled from their home in Ohio to the Outer Banks where the wind is almost always blowing strong.

The view from the top of Kill Devil Hill offers the viewer a panoramic view of the Albemarle Sound to the west, the vast Atlantic Ocean to the east and a nice view of Kill Devil Hills the town. Visitors can not climb the monument but you can walk up to the monument and around it, read the inscriptions and see the bust of Wilbur and Orville Wright.
The Wright Brothers National Memorial is open every day all year round except Christmas Day. Hours are 9:00am-5:00pm.
