Artifact Info

The roughly 3,100 pound beam located in the heart of the GT 9/11 Memorial Park is a portion of a support beam from the North Tower of WTC. Firefighters from GT Metro Fire Department made the trek to JFK Airport Hanger #17 and safely transported the artifact from JFK to Traverse City on April 8, 2011. The artifact was permanently placed at the GT 9/11 Memorial Park in 2012 and annual memorial services are held on 9/11. We are honored to be the steward of the GT 9/11 Memorial Park.

We appreciate your support. Never Forget.
