19 Hudson Valley Places That Display World Trade Center Beams
Steel beams from the World Trade Center can be found in 19 different places throughout the Hudson Valley.
For years, the Port Authority has been placing relics from the twin towers in communities throughout the 50 states and across the world. These pieces of steel that have remained after the attacks of 9/11 have been used in memorials visited by countless Americans wishing to honor the service and sacrifice of those who lost their lives on that fateful day.
Here in the Hudson Valley there are many places where these powerful artifacts are displayed. They're located at Fire Departments, community centers and memorials like the one on Route 9 dedicated to Sgt. Palmateer.
The Port Authority made certain that all relics from the 9/11 attack that were handed out would be made available to the public for viewing. Every one of the sites listed below is open to the public so that everyone can visit these important pieces of history.
No more artifacts from the World Trade Center will be handed out, since the Port Authority's program ended last Spring. In fact, the very last beam was given to the Beacon Elks Lodge in April. Here are the locations listed in the Port Authority's official database as compiled by Syracuse.com:
