These two metal beams are a surprising sight to behold when entering Winslow from the east along the famed Route 66. They happen to be actual fragments saved from the World Trade Center in New York City.
This memorial pays a somber tribute to the men and women who lost their lives during the September 11th attacks. It’s a truly moving installation consisting of two original beams that were erected to represent the Twin Towers.
The plaque located at the memorial reads: “These two steel beams from the World Trade Center, entrusted to the citizens of Winslow by the City of New York, along with this flag that was flown at the Pentagon, stand as the centerpiece of our Remembrance Garden. The words “United We Stand” remind the world that we will not fear terrorism. We hereby dedicate this Garden to Northern Arizona’s promise that ‘WE WILL NEVER FORGET”.
This memorial garden also includes a large piece from the original bridge that once connected to the town.
