1. Site of Neil Armstrong's First Flight Marker
Inscription. On July 26, 1936 at the age of six Neil Armstrong, a Warren and Champion Township resident took his "first flight" in a Ford Tri-motor airplane from the Warren Airways which was located on this exact site. This sparked his love of aviation.

Thirty-three years later, on July 20, 1969, history was made when Astronaut Neil Armstron made his "first flight" in the Apollo 11 module and became the first man to walk on the moon.

"That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind."
