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
