I worked at Wright-Patt for two years and I think that it is definitely possible that parts of the Roswell UFO were stored there, though I highly
doubt that they remain there today.
While it is close to Dayton, it's not near close enough for the city to be much of a security risk. It's a good 20 min drive to get into Dayton.
It is close to a much smaller city called Fairborn, but this is your typical medium-sized military base town.
Wright-Patt is a very large base (with 3 different and separate areas) and there's plenty of room to store secret things. (And I've also heard
rumors of it having a fairly large underground complex-but that's another thread) They developed early stealth technology there and it's the home
of the Air and Space Intelligence Center (where they did a lot of reverse-engineering of crafts back in the cold war days...maybe UFOs?). The
so-called "Hanger 18" does not exist to my knowledge(not that they would advertise), but there is a Building 18 (headquarters of the propulsion
directorate no less) with several different annexes. I was told one of these was a cold storage facility that is no longer in use. It's pretty big.
Could have been there? Maybe. More likely some other place-but like I said, there's no shortage of space or out of the way locales.
Also, the base is pretty secure, though I can't speak for back in the day. But today at least it's much harder to get on Wright-Patterson than it
is to Quantico, which is where I work now. I was expecting Quantico to be more secure, but it doesn't seem that way at all.
