Stoystown in Somerset County, Pennsylvania — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Flight 93 National Memorial
A common ﬁeld one day, a ﬁeld of honor forever.
United Airlines Flight 93 crashes into a field two miles ahead of you, shattering the quiet of the Pennsylvania countryside. Those who rush to the scene look on in disbelief at charred trees and a smoldering crater. This community, like countless others across the nation, is shaken by the crash and the unimaginable violence and destruction al-Qaeda terrorists bring to the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. But as the day unfolds, this ordinary field reveals a compelling story of courage and hope.
This Memorial is a tribute to the passengers and crew of Flight 93 and a place to explore this inspiring story. You will journey through a landscape that still hints at its mining past, on your way to a simple field that is their final resting place, and a lasting testament to the deeds of 40 extraordinary people.
