On Wednesday, we went to my school to drop off some of my things. Then we went to lunch and the Wright Brothers Interpretive Center. Last spring, I started taking Third Street home because of the construction on Route 35 at 675. I passed the Interpretive Center many times on my way home but had not realized it.
We got to see how the Wrights figured out how to have a successful heavier-than-air manned flying machine. We also learned about their printing business. The boys’ favorite areas were the parachute area and the supermarket area.
After we finished up with the Interpretive Center, we went next door to the Wright Brothers’ Cycle Shop. They had five bicycle shops. The fourth one is the only one in existence. It was neat walking into that Cycle Shop, knowing that the Wright Brothers had worked there over a hundred years ago.
Behind the Cycle Shop, there is an outhouse. The Imaginative One asked me what an outhouse is. He then looked at it again and decided it was a wooden port-a-potty. I like his description.
Here are pictures from our visit to the Interpretive Center:
