Visitor Shelter and Arrival Court
This area serves as a gateway to the story of Flight 93 and to the Memorial Plaza. Interpretive panels provide ways to explore the Flight 93 story. Within the Visitor Shelter is the Leave Your Message wall. Park Rangers and volunteers are present to answer questions and deliver programs.
The long sloping black wall marks the northern edge of the
Hemlock Grove and Impact Site
At the edge of the field is what remains of a hemlock grove damaged by the crash of Flight 93. A gap is visible where the damaged trees were removed. At the base of the grove is a boulder which marks the general location of the impact site. The FBI excavated the site and the crater was later filled in at the direction of the coroner.
Wall of Names and Flight Path
The Wall of Names, forty
inscribed white marble panels,
honors the passengers and crew.
Visitors are encouraged to explore
the subtle details of the Wall of
Names. The black granite walkway
marks a portion of the flight path.
At the wooden Ceremonial Gate,
visitors can look down the flight
path to the impact site.
