● Twin granite towers, nearly eleven feet tall and are close in scale with the twin towers lost at the World Trade Center
● The names of each person who perished in New York City on 9/11 is engraved into the twin granite towers, including all the first responders, people working in the World Trade Center, along with passengers and crews from United 75 & American 11 ● Two additional monuments – one with the engraved names of the passengers and crew of United 93, and a second monument engraved with the names of the military and civilian employees who perished at the Pentagon, along with the passengers and crew on American 77
● The Flight 93 monument in the shape of the State of Pennsylvania, which impacted in Shanksville, PA
● The Flight 77 limestone monument is in the shape of the Pentagon, which is the site of impact
● A rock from the field where Flight 93 crashed, which is on permanent loan from the National Park Service to the Foundation and City of Cashmere
● A historic metal beam section from the former Twin Towers
● A stone façade piece from the top of the Pentagon
● The Survivor Tree – a Callery Pear Tree is planted as a remembrance of the tree found charred and pulled from the smoldering ruins of the World Trade Center site
A focal point is four life-sized, bronze statues.
The statues represent and honor different genders, races, professions, and everyday citizens who gave their lives unselfishly. They include:
● A MILITARY SERVICE PERSON, representing all the services that were affected at the World Trade Center and Pentagon, including those who died and those currently serving
● A FIREMAN, representing all first responders including police, security, and emergency Medical personnel
● An OFFICE WORKER, representing the managers, support staff, cooks and
maintenance personnel that were the heart and soul of these buildings
● A FLIGHT ATTENDANT, representing all the crew and passengers
One symbolic figure is missing from the circle of life-size statues, with only two bronze footprints remaining. This pays tribute to those who died and those whose bodies will never be recovered. It also allows the public to interact with the statues by standing on the footprints and grasping their outstretched open hands, thus completing the circle and symbolizing the unity of our nation.
