Preservationists plan last-ditch try at saving Wright Brothers bicycle shop from demolition

In 1892, the brick building at 1005 West Third Street had several large windows that allowed the residents of Dayton, Ohio, to peek inside and see the Wright brothers, who were still years from becoming pioneers of flight, run their bicycle shop.


Now, the windows are gone, plywood is in their place and the building could soon be demolished.
