Hawthorn Hill Tour
Sep 29 @ 10:00 am – Dec 27 @ 11:30 am

Join us for a tour of Hawthorn Hill, one of Ohio’s most beautiful and gracious buildings, designed as the home for Daytonians Wilbur and Orville Wright. Named for the site’s many native hawthorn trees. Originally a 17-acre tract of land, the Wrights purchased the property in 1912. The Dayton architectural firm, Schenck and Williams, designed the home to the Wright family’s exacting specifications. Hawthorn Hill has five bedrooms and four bathrooms, servant’s quarters, and a full basement and attic. Orville included all the modern-day amenities: electricity, heat and plumbing. Hawthorn Hill was the Wright family’s sanctuary, a place where they could enjoy solitude, family and friends.
