The Dayton Aviation Heritage National Historical Park comprises four noncontiguous sites in Dayton, Ohio. The park was established to 'commemorate the legacy of three exceptional men - Wilbur Wright, Orville Wright, and Paul Laurence Dunbar - and their lives and works in the Miami Valley; recognize the national significance of the contributions made by the Wright brothers and Paul Laurence Dunbar and the city of Dayton's role in their contributions; (and, to) promote preservation and interpretation of resources related to the lives of these three men and the invention of flight through a management framework based on cooperation among the diverse groups that share an interest in aviation history and Paul Laurence Dunbar.' One of the four sites is The Wright Cycle Company building. Located at 22 South Williams Street on the west side of Dayton, The Wright Cycle Company building is a two-story detached, red brick, commercial structure with a full basement. Built in 1886, the building has been described as a typical neighborhood grocery store type of the period. The Wright Cycle Company building's significance stems from the fact that it was in this building that the Wright's printing and bicycle businesses were brought together under the same roof.
