Business Ethics & Environmental Sustainability: Carillon Historical Park

The BEES year-long acquisition of an understanding of the economic and environmental history of the Dayton area culminated in a visit to the Carillon Historical Park, a 65-acre, open-air history museum revealing Dayton’s pivotal (and sometimes regrettable) contributions to the world.

Contributions include the Langstroth bee hive, cash register, self-starting ignition system for automobiles, leaded gasoline, CFCs, first commercially viable airplanes, backpack parachute, pop-tab, vertical bar codes, LCDs and Cheez-Its.  

Thrills included riding the replica of an 1851 steam locomotive train (electric today, steam coal back in the day) and seeing one of the resident bald eagles — Will or Orville — delivering fish to their babies.
