Back in May when my Grandma moved to Eastern Washington, I had the opportunity to visit the 9/11 Memorial. Just like you are probably thinking, who knew there was a 9/11 Memorial in Kennewick? I thought the exact same thing! But, wow, what an amazing memorial the City of Kennewick put together. Absolutely. Stunning.
About the 9/11 Memorial:
On September 11, 2011, Kennewick, Washington recognized the 10th anniversary of 9/11 by placing a 35-foot-tall steal beam of the twin towers as a permanent memorial. The memorial consists of two beams from the World Trade Towers, obtained from the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, weighing nearly 6,000 pounds, combined with a tastefully designed flag pole and memorial plaque.
To make my visit to the memorial even more memorable the weather was beautiful with stunning blue sky.
If you ever get a chance, stop by and visit it!
