FLIGHT 93 MEMORIAL – Discover the story of courage, action and honor at Flight 93 Memorial in Stoystown, Pennsylvania. The memorial is located at the crash site of United Airlines Flight 93, which was hijacked during the attacks on our country on September 11. This memorial honors the 40 passengers and crew aboard Flight 93 who prevented the intended attacks on the US Capital in Washington, DC. The memorial of Flight 93 preserves, protects and tells the story of Flight 93 with the help of the U.S. National Park Service.
The tower is conceived as a monumental, ninety-three feet tall musical instrument holding forty wind chimes, representing the forty passengers and crew members. It is intended to be a landmark feature near the memorial entrance, visible from the road.
QUECREEK MINE RESCUE FOUNDATION – Come with us and visit the rescue site where can walk right up to the rescue shaft where 9 miners emerged from the dark, cold mine 240 feet below after 77 hours in frigid darkness. We will be greeted by a 7 foot tall bronze statue of a coal miner at the top of the walkway into the rescue site. Here you will hear the story of the miracle from the people personally involved in the rescue. Touch the rescue capsule, see the broken drill bit that shut down the rescue, and some of the clothing worn.
