9/11 Memorial

Built in 2012, the one-of-a-kind 9/11 Memorial at Curlew Hills Memory Gardens features twisted piece of steel “floating” in the center, 30 tons of American granite as the towers, and a bright eternal flame at its base.  Surrounding the 9/11 memorial itself are large granite monuments with the engraved names of the firefighters who lost their lives at 9/11 – including the K-9 dog who perished that day. Many of the visitors to the 9/11 Memorial take pencil etchings from these monuments.

Benghazi Monument– On the pathway leading to the 9/11 memorial is a one-of-a-kind memorial dedicated to the four men who lost their lives in the Benghazi attack on September 11, 2012 – Ambassador Chris Stevens, Information Officer Sean Smith and two CIA operatives, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods, both former navy seals. It is one of only three memorials in the United States honoring the men in the Benghazi attack.

New Rescue & Recovery Workers Monument – This special and one-of-a-kind monument recognizes the Rescue & Recovery Workers who succumbed to their illness as a result of working rescue and recovery at the 9/11 site. Experts predict that the death toll among those sickened by the toxic dust and ash of Ground Zero will exceed the number of people killed on the day of the 9/11 attacks this year. This permanent memorial honors the firefighters, police officers, construction workers, and volunteers who spent time in the rubble of the World Trade Center in the days or months after the attacks and have since died from illnesses related to their honorable work. Each year, at the 9-11 Memorial Event, Curlew Hills will update the number of people on the memorial.

Memorial Bell – The large, beautiful bell that sits adjacent to the 9/11 Memorial has a significant history. It was originally on the last wooden ladder fire truck in New York City. Donated by retired NYC firefighter Joe Daly, the bell was refurbished and now stands at a place of honor in front of the 9/11 Memorial.  It is used during the ceremony for the Tolling of the Bell.
