Kill Devil Hills is the actual site where the Wright Brothers made their first powered flight. It is the location of the Wright Brothers National Memorial and the original Visitor's Center both of which have a separate VT location.

In addition to finding out that it wasn't Kitty Hawk that was the location of the First Flight but only the location of the place where the telegram about it was sent, I also noticed that Kill Devil Hills was the home to many outdoor art works.

In addition to these fiberglass statues which are painted and then used for fundraising in the local area (Pegasus was chosen to represent both the OBX wild ponies and the connection with aviation), there was some outdoor welded junk sculpture at Chili Pepper's restaurant.
