Wilbur Wright's Birthplace

Undoubtedly Richmond High School's most famous graduate, Wilbur Wright was born in this small home just west of Hagerstown, near Millville, Indiana in Henry County.  The home has been restored and there is also a small, but fascinating museum on the grounds, featuring a full size replica of the first Wright Flyer
