World Trade Center beam to finally get permanent home in Lower Burrell, PA

The Lower Burrell [PA] American Legion Post 868’s September 11th memorial containing three feet of steel from the World Trade Center should be completed in time for their annual ceremony commemorating the victims of the terrorist attacks.

The steel has been in storage since it arrived in 2011 while a location was decided upon. The local school was the first choice, but it was decided that a public memorial on school grounds could be a security issue, wrote Liz Hayes of the Tribune-Review on February 20, 2016.

The American Legion Post is accessible and visible, a prominent place for the memorial.
