The Wright Brothers Memorial is a towering, 60-foot tall granite structure that sits at the top of the hill where the famous brothers flew their glider for the first time. Walking to the top of the hill to check out the memorial up close is a must. In addition to seeing the larger-than-it-appears memorial, you are treated to an impressive bird’s eye ocean to sound view of Kill Devil Hills. At the bottom of the hill is a life-size sculpture of the first flight, including the glider and the Wright Brothers.
