WRIGHT PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE HISTORY
Archaeological evidence of prehistoric peoples at Wright-Patterson extends back to the period of the Adena culture, which disappeared from the area nearly two millennia ago. Two important Adena sites, known as the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base Mound and the Wright Brothers Memorial Mound Group, are located on base: the single mound lies along P Street on the base, less than a mile south of the hilltop where the mound group sits.
