Zion and Arches Explore Dayton History


Eighth-grade teams Zion and Arches went on a Dayton history field trip last week! The 8th graders went to The Woodland Cemetery first to see the historic graves of Wilbur, Orville, and Katherine Wright as well as Paul Laurence Dunbar, the first African-American to make a living from poetry. The students then went to Carillon Park to see the 1913 flood exhibit, the many Wright Brothers exhibits, and a bonus visit from Orville and Willa the eagles! Everyone then hopped in the bus yet again to go to the United States Air Force Museum. There we saw several models of the Wright Flyers, as well as planes from the Cold War, World War 1 and 2, etc. Lastly, the buses drove over to Huffman Prairie, the exact field where the Wright brothers perfected and invented the airplane! It truly was a historic trip to justĀ 

submerge yourself in everything Dayton.
