Glenn Curtiss

Curtiss began his career as a bicycle racer and builder, moved on to motorcycles and in 1907 he earned the title “Fastest man alive” in Ormond Beach Florida, setting a land speed record on his V8 motorcycle. He then began to manufacture airplanes and engines. Curtis received the first pilot’s license in the U.S.
 

Curtiss made the first officially witnessed flight in North America; won a race at the world’s first international air meet in France, and made the first long-distance flight in the United States. His contributions in designing and building aircraft led to the formation of the Curtiss Aeroplane and Motor Company, now part of the Curtiss-Wright Corporation.


His company built aircraft for the U.S. Army and Navy and during the years leading up to World War I, his experiments with seaplanes led to advances in naval aviation. Curtiss civil and military aircraft were predominant in the inter-war and World War II eras.

One of the unique features of the Glenn Curtiss Room is you can see the original site of his factory and offices located at the old school (SW Lake St.), and the house (brown) he was born in, adjacent to the property (which use to set on Vine St. and was moved by the Masson family to the back of the property on Orchard St.)

We chose a black and white French Toile fabric to represent Curtis’s famous flight in Rheims France. This room overlooks the expansive lawn, gardens, and unique Tulip tree. Has a wrought iron four poster Queen bed, en suite bathroom.
