The Indiana 911 Memorial began in 2010 by Greg Hess, an Indianapolis firefighter/paramedic, as a grass roots effort to establish a memorial dedicated to honor those killed in the Sept. 11 attack. Two 22-foot steel beams from the World Trade Center are the focal point of the Project. Behind the beams stand a pair of six-foot tall black granite walls inscribed with remembrances of the events in New York City, Washington, D.C. and Shanksville, Pennsylvania. Perched atop one of the beams is a bronze, life-size sculpture of an American Bald Eagle with wings outstretched and gazing east toward New York City.
The memorial was dedicated Sept. 11, 2011 at 421 W. Ohio St. along the canal.
