The River Walk begins at the northeast corner of Main Street and Monument Avenue, where you will see an 8×8 brick medallion in the pavement. This medallion announces that Dayton is the “Innovation Capital of the World,” due to the fact that Dayton has had more inventions per capita than any other city in the United States.
Besides the seven main Invention Stations, the bricks commemorate several other inventions and innovations:
- digital watches
- the cracking of the Enigma Code in WWII
