Wright Brothers Park is Now Open!

On July 2, 2013 Overlook Park was officially renamed as Wright Brothers Park.  The park is located near where Orville and Wilbur Wright started the first aviation flying school in the United States in 1910.  That school is now Maxwell Air Force Base.  There is a Wright Brothers plane replica located in the park along with a new pavilion.  There will will also be a playground located in the park, which will be installed in the coming months.  Appearing and speaking at the dedication was the Great-Grand Niece of Orville and Wilbur Wright, Amanda Wright Lane.  After she spoke Mayor Todd Strange presented to her a picture of the Wright Brothers plane replica, while she presented a Huffman Prairie Flying Field picture, the location where the Wright Brothers built the airplane and taught themselves to be pilots, to Mayor Strange and the City of Montgomery.
