Transportation in Maine During the Wright Era: December 17, 2003 marked a tremendous anniversary in transportation. One hundred years earlier, Orville and Wilbur Wright succeeded in making the first successful controlled, powered, heavier than air flight, an undertaking that lasted only 12 seconds and spanned 120 feet.
The unifying theme for this exhibition is the human drive for Competition throughout history, at all stages of life and how that Competition speeds progress in Transportation, Technology and Society as a whole.
This inaugural season finale event is a harvest-themed celebration of the end of the 2014 outdoor event season.
