Another visit to a cemetery for another RoadsideAmerica recommendation. This one is the grave of a boy who drowned after falling in a local canal, and his dog who refused to leave the grave. :(

I took my husband by here for the first time just recently and he was very surprised about the history here.

What a beautiful place! A very nice employee led us on her golf cart to the Wright family site and showed us Paul Dunbar's grave and how to find Erma Bombeck's grave too.
We spent some time just driving and walking through the area. The Cemetery is well maintained and easy to get around in. Time very well spent.

We went for a visit with friends to visit the Wright Brothers gravesite and were amazed at the other interesting sites we found. Hopefully you are able to stop in the office during busines hours to get a map of the various "famous" gravesites throughout the cemetary. if not, just checkout their website for additional information. Check out the "dog and little boy grave site", that is a great story. It sounds weird but this is a true treasure for Dayton wel worth the stop.

When we arrived, the office was closed for the day but there were maps available to help us find our way. Not only did we see the "Wright Brothers Family Plot", but were surprised to learn of some of the other well known people who share this final resting place. As expected, the cemetery was peaceful and gave visitors a beautiful place to reflect.
