Dedicated in memory of those early aviation pioneers "The Early Birds" 

Between the years 1910-1917, aviators Weldon B. Cooke and Tom W. Benoist had aeroplane factories and flying schools in Sandusky which had a very important part in early aviation. Also, aeroplane engines, manufactured in Sandusky by the Roberts Aviation Motor Company, were used throughout the world. 

To these pioneers and others who helped produce and fly these early aircraft, we do herein give honor.
