Perhaps you didn’t know there was a third Wright brother who decided not to experiment with flight at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina.
Instead of testing his inventions on the Atlantic Coast, he moved to the shores of Lake Superior and developed his own futuristic transportation ideas.
Utilizing the strong lake winds, eight months of frozen ice and annual snowfall totals approaching 15-feet, Grover Wright knew the northland supplied the best natural laboratory in the nation.
He moved all his tools, machinery and equipment from Ohio and set up a new shop. As his brothers gave birth to man-made flight and revolutionized the world, Grover spent decades tinkering with bizarre and misguided transportation inventions.
Needless to say Grover was a total failure. Disowned by his brothers Wilbur and Orville, he died in obscurity.
Some of his early work remains littered about on a piece of property at his former workshop location in Minnesota. Or is it Wisconsin?
Take you best guess as to which state Grover Wright established his aviation workshop. As a tie breaker, explain his ideas behind the above pictured object.
