The Monument is
situated on a high hill overlooking the ocean and the Aycock Brown Welcome
Set against the open sky of
Kitty Hawk on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, where flight began, the
Monument to a Century of Flight provides a reflective and contemplative
environment. It is surrounded by the simple beauty of the barrier island's
natural vegetation and looks out toward the waters of the Atlantic.
The site is state-owned
land adjoining the Aycock Brown Welcome Center and is provided by the North
Carolina Department of Transportation and possible because of a gifting of
property by Billy and Mildred Roughton. The Monument is maintained as a public
park, open and accessible to all without admission charge.
