Flight 93 Memorial & Chapel
The Pie Shoppe
Flight 93 Memorial Chapel is a refurbished parish church dedicated to the honor and glory of God and to the Heroes of Flight 93, the innocents who perished on September 11, 2001. The non-denominational Chapel is recognized as the first permanent memorial to Flight 93 and was dedicated on September 11, 2002.
The Flight 93 National Memorial is located at the site of the crash of United Airlines Flight 93, which was hijacked in the September 11 attacks, in Stonycreek Township, Pennsylvania, about 2 miles north of Shanksville, and 60 miles southeast of Pittsburgh. The memorial was made to honor the passengers and crew of Flight 93, who stopped the terrorists from reaching their target. A temporary memorial to the 40 victims was established soon after the crash, and the first phase of the permanent memorial was completed, opened, and dedicated on September 10, 2011.
Before opening The Pie Shoppe, Mildred gained her baking expertise running a boarding house in Kregar, PA. She served delicious homemade pies, breads and rolls to her guests, many of whom were constructing the Pennsylvania Turnpike between Somerset and Donegal. Since 1970, Melvin’s youngest son Tom has owned and operated the business. Sixty-six years later, the pies and rolls are still homemade right in Laughlintown.
