Have you ever wondered what the inside of the historic Wright Brothers Monument looks like?

This weekend’s your chance to find out. From Saturday, Nov. 9 to Monday, Nov. 11 the base of the monument on Kill Devil Hill will be open for you to look inside.

Also, in honor of Veterans Day, Monday will be a fee-free day at the Wright Brothers National Memorial at 1000 S. Croatan Highway in Kill Devil Hills.

The 60-foot granite memorial in Kill Devil Hills was built in 1932, five years after Congress established the site for a national memorial to commemorate Wilbur and Orville Wright’s first flight in 1903.



  1. Since I live in Louisville, Kentucky and can’t visit the Wright Brothers memorial this weekend, I would have appreciated a few more inside photos.

    • I can’t see in there from Southwest Florida. I hope next edition has some pictures.
      My super dooper high-power telescope can’t cut through the smog and the door is facing the wrong direction.
