College Park Aviation Museum

In 1909 after proving the practicality of aviation to the US Army, Wilbur Wright trained the first generation of military aviators at a new airfield in what would come to be known as College Park. The College Park Airport has been home to a century of aviation history, and still operates today, making it the oldest continually operated airport in the world. It is home to many "firsts" in aviation, and is particularly significant for the well-known aviators and aviation inventors who played a part in this field's long history.
