Carillon Historical Park showcases Dayton's rich heritage of creativity, invention, and milestones in innovation that changed the nation and the world. The Park's 25 exhibit buildings and structures are situated on a beautiful 65-acre campus. The Park is home to the 1905 Wright Flyer III, cash registers, railway system that includes trains and trolleys, automobiles, bicycles, a 1930 print shop, a 1924 gas station, covered bridge, iron bridge, canal lock, and an 1896 one-room schoolhouse.

Col. Edward A. Deeds, a prominent Dayton resident founded the Park with his wife Edith. Mrs. Deeds was inspired by the carillons she had seen in Europe and presented a carillon to the people of Dayton as a gift in 1942. After World II, Col. Deeds began adding historical displays which focused on Dayton's transportation, industrial and inventive history.
