Landmark · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
The memorial project at the Fire Training Center in Overland Park, KS will be one of the largest 9/11 memorial projects in the nation.

It is one of the most intricately-designed and publicly-accessible and only educational memorial.

The memorial includes a 14 foot, 5,600 pound steel beam from the World Trade Center. The beam has a hole near the upright tip that will cast a shadow on four panels marking each of the four planes that crashed on Sept. 11, 2001. At the exact time each plane hit, the shadow will be marked on the panels to forever remember those moments in history.
