Holy cow, this is really neat, they have a piece of beam from one of the twin towers, I went twice and got goose bumps and a weird feeling in my heart and gut. I think it's haunted. Worth a stop.

While the memorial is small in size it is designed with a heartfelt tribute to those that lost their lives during the 9/11 attack.

Everyone remembers where they were that day and to see part of the structure took my breath away. The town has made a vert tasteful memorial.

A fitting tribute to those heroes of the 9-11 tragedy by a friendly mid-sized town which shows good heart and a local touch.

Along our road trip we stopped here. It is a very nice, well kept, small memorial for 9/11! I loved that I could touch a steel beam from that horrific day! Side note no restrooms on site.

I have stopped here several time with friends while out riding our motorcycles. The have a piece of the structural steel from the Twin towers in New York. Agreat place to stretch and walk around a little. I know that I will sop again

Very interesting and worth the quick visit. Not far from the highway. Right in the middle of town. Read the sign, it explains the monument and purpose.
