e were created in God’s image, and He created everything that was ever created. So when God directed man to “fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth” it wasn’t an impossible task. From the beginning, men have been solving problems by developing remarkable tools and innovative processes that improve our lives and those around us, just as he was created to do.
Bring your family this spring, as we look into a place and a period that exploded with creativity and birthed inventions that literally transformed the world — Dayton Ohio. When the Bishop Milton Wright’s two sons, Wilbur and Orville, made their historic flight in 1903, Dayton residents had more patents per capita than any other U.S. city. Factories sprang up producing cash registers, train cars, sewing machines (the Davis Sewing factory was a mile long!) bicycles, airplanes and much more. Landmark Events historian Bill Potter will guide us through some great venues, providing a distinctly Christian interpretation of the sites and stories we encounter. We guarantee you will leave inspired and encouraged!
