Steel Beams from the World Trade Center New York City
Weirton Steel Corporation presented these World Trade Center steel beams to the Brooke-Hancock Veterans Memorial Park in memory of the victims of September 11, 2001.
The corporation retained these three World Trade Center beams for this memorial and recycled the remainder of them in its steelmaking process.
May these beams keep alive the memory of those who perished and remind us of life's fragility, the need to be vigilant, the freedoms we share and the need to defend those freedoms.
