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.

Small memorial, but definitely significant. Beautiful landscape and quiet area to memorialize such a pivotal point in time. Worth a stop if you are nearby. more »
Small but done so well I am excited we stopped to look. It was right next to the fire dept training center so we even hot to see some "rescues" in progress.
The auditory explanation of the memorial's design elements was really good... Especially the part about the sunlight through the hole at top of column piece hitting the timeline panels.
