Sunday was way too nice to stay indoors, so we took a drive and checked out the carillon by the Great Miami River.
Turns out, it’s not just a huge instrument jutting from of the earth [ I took a photo ], but part historical landmark with a village of museums.
Stand-alone buildings (most original) exhibit artifacts and illustrate Dayton’s “heritage of creativity, invention, and milestones in transportation.”
There are some great bits of machinery from NCR (National Cash Register), trains, buses, bikes, printing presses, and a 1905 Wright Flyer to boot. We found a guide who was happy to give us a personal tour of the plane and provide some perspective on the Wright brothers I can’t recall without coffee.
I’ll be going back to check out Culp’s Cafe and wander some more.
