There are several historical figures buried in this cemetery. The Wright Brothers and their family are buried here. They have done some improvements to help you locate the historical figures buried here in this peaceful place. It also offers a nice view of downtown Dayton.

This is a must see for anyone interested in history. So much to see and easy to walk around. The trees make most routes shaded. Take some time and take a walk.

Lots of famous people buried in this cemetery if you want to see dead peoples' graves. It is a nice place to walk - if you want to get off the sidewalks

This is truly one of the cities gems. Gorgeous grounds, tons of historic grave markers, great views of the city, and the resting place of Orville and Wilbur Wright; Paul Lawrence Dunbar and many other Dayton history makers.

I expect there are many that would not recreate in a cemetery, but having grown up living next door to a vast cemetary, I find Solitude in a place such as this. My wife and I have taken to long walks in the "grave yard"...More
