Description: Flight pioneer Wilbur Wright was born on April 16, 1867 in this small farm house near Millville, Indiana. He was the third of seven children born to Milton Wright and Susan Catherine Koerner Wright (married in 1859). Milton was a minister in the United Brethren Church, professor of theology, editor of his church newspaper, and an elected Bishop in his church. Susan excelled in literature and science at Hartville College, especially mathematics. She was quite skilled with hand tools and often built household appliances and toys for her family. During his childhood, Wilbur developed many technical skills and learned critical thinking, attributes that would eminate throughout his life.

Interestingly, none of the Wright children were given middle names. Instead, Milton and Susan tried hard to give them distinctive first names. Wilbur was named for Wilbur Fiske and Orville for Orville Dewey, both clergyman that Milton admired. They were "Will" and "Orv" to their friends, and "Ullam" and "Bubs" to each other.
