    Here, one can learn all about Dayton's past. All in all, 25 historic buildings have been painstakingly rebuilt here to create this "town". Standing nearby is Deed Carillon, whose 57 bells are used to perform concerts in the summer. Built in 1942, it's one of Dayton's best-known landmarks.

    Among the buildings here are the Wright Cycle Shop, with a lot of memorabilia including an early Wright flyer. This was the first practical airplane, which could be steered by a technique called "wing warping".

    Also, be sure to visit the Newcom Tavern, Dayton's oldest surviving building. There is also an exhibit of early trains and trolley cars, a power plant, an auto dealer, a gas station, a mill, and a lot more.
