Neal Kindervater's father, Capt. William H. Kindervater, was instrumental in building the Wright Brothers Memorial and also a good friend of Orville Wright.
William H. Kindervater, his wife, Ellen, and their six children lived in a Methodist parsonage, which sat on the site of the original home where Orville and Wilbur Wright had stayed while testing their flying machines.
Shortly after work on the monument began, William Kindervater, an engineer with the Army Quartermaster's Office, was named supervisor for the project.Much of his work involved stabilizing the hill on which the monument stands.
While in town, Wright would spend much of his time with William Kindervater, who eventually served as caretaker for the memorial.
While William Kindervater would inspect the site or meet with Wright and other engineers, the four boys would take turns rolling down the 90-foot hill.
William H. Kindervater Jr. flew B-25s over North Africa and Sicily, Julius Kindervater worked with the 8th Air Force in Oxford, England, and Neal Kindervater was a naval aviator, flying patrol bombers over both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.
There are sepia-toned photographs of the beach and the monument, newspaper clippings from the 1930s and more photos of William H. Kindervater with Orville Wright.
The most treasured heirloom is a letter written to Ellen Kindervater after William H. Kindervater passed away in 1939.
