HISTORY OF DAYTON


Dayton was founded in the late 1700’s by a small group who settled along the banks of the Great Miami River. Dayton was named for a captain in the Revolutionary War by the name of Jonathan Dayton. The Miami and Erie Canal was built in the 1830’s and helped to connect Lake Erie to the Miami River and was the main route of travel in the part of Ohio during the early to mid 1800’s.

Dayton was the first large city in the United States to adopt a council-manager form of government, back in 1913. In this form of city government, the mayor has one vote just like the rest of the commissioners that sit on the city council and the council chooses a city manager, who is the administrative authority over the city government.

Dayton is also known as the birthplace of aviation. Native Daytonians, Orville and Wilbur Wright built the first machine capable of sustained flight here and launched it in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. Our aviation heritage is very evident throughout the city; take a tour of the Dayton Aviation Heritage Park and the Wright Cycle Company Building, which pay tribute to the Wrights’ achievements. Many other inventors and entrepreneurs came out of Dayton, Ohio, such as John Patterson, founder of NCR, and inventor Charles Kettering. Other famous natives of Dayton, Ohio, include Paul Lawrence Dunbar, Erma Bombeck, and actors Martin Sheen and Allison Janney.
