Glenn H. Curtiss Circle is a large circular park ringed by a road in the downtown district of Miami Springs FL. The town memorializes its founder in this most fitting way and with earshot of Miami International Airport which was also founded by Curtiss among countless other aviation achievements, as well as patents, still in use today.

    Thanks for this, Joe! I have been fortunate enough to visit the Curtiss Museum at Hammondsport – a wonderful place!
