The Wright Seaplane Base

The Historical Marker below is located at the Miami-Erie Canal Park on Marina Drive in West Carrollton.  It marks the site where Orville Wright flew seaplanes in 1913 and 1914, using this portion of the Great Miami River for its deep water, open sightlines and the ninety degree bend that allowed him to take off and land either north-south or east-west, depending on prevailing winds.
