You are looking at the hill where the Wright Brothers launched their gliders as they tested components and prepared for the first flight. It was a sand dune when they were there. They then launched the plane from the flat plain below. The first flight went 120 ft and lasted 12 sec. The monument on the top of the hill, Kill Devil Hill, is a centerpoint for the National Monument dedicated to Kitty Hawk and the Wright brothers.
