MORAINE, Ohio (WDTN) – The City of Moraine is celebrating its history by dotting the community with historical markers.
Ten markers honor historical figures and sites around the city.

The city’s web site says workers from the Dayton-Wright Airplane Factory lived there. It was called Edison Avenue in 1917.
Other notable sites include the site of the former Delco-Light and Frigidaire, Zion Memorial Church, the Dayton-Wright Airplane Factory and the Miami-Erie Canal.
