World Trade Center 9/11 Memorial
WTC beam.jpg
Remnants of steel from the World Trade Center, which was destroyed during the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, have been collected and are being stored in an aircraft hangar at New York's JFK International Airport.  These artifacts have been made available to select public entities for the purpose of paying tribute to the civilians and first responders who lost their lives during the attacks.

Manheim Township went through the application process in 2010 in an attempt to receive one of the artifacts for our own memorial.  Thanks in part to cooperation with the New York Port Authority, assistance from Congressman Joe Pitts' office, High Industries, High Steel, and High Transit, on June 21, 2011, the Township's artifact was delivered to the memorial site, located behind the Library on the Overlook Community Campus.  Our steel beam from the World Trade Center is approximately 15 feet long and weighs nearly three tons.

This project is very unique and special and we are hopeful that it will not cost taxpayers any money.  Work being planned so far has been completed through in-kind donations and donated services from local businesses.  An official dedication ceremony and event commemorating the memorial site will be held once the project has been completed.
