Also, in honor of Veterans Day, Monday will be a fee-free day at the Wright Brothers National Memorial at 1000 S. Croatan Highway in Kill Devil Hills.

The 60-foot granite memorial in Kill Devil Hills was built in 1932, five years after Congress established the site for a national memorial to commemorate Wilbur and Orville Wright’s first flight in 1903.
