Wright Brothers National Memorial Visitor Center

After a 2-year rehabilitation and preservation effort, the Visitor Center at the Wright Brothers National Memorial has been reopened! Awarded LEED Gold certification, the site has been upgraded with solar panels, geothermal wells, native plantings, and accessibility improvements, along with a full building restoration. This effort is an exciting reminder of the contributions of Orville and Wilbur Wright and how they changed the world forever. HagerSmith Design led the restoration effort for this iconic NC landmark. Constructed in 1959, the Wright Brothers National Memorial Visitor Center is a significant example of the Philadelphia School of Modernism and a prominent contribution of the Mission 66 National Park Service construction effort. Through these rehabilitation efforts, future generations will continue to have an opportunity to learn about the significance of the Wright Brothers and the discovery of flight.
