A common field one day, a field of honor forever. The Flight 93 National Memorial was established at and in memory of the September 11, 2001, hijacking and subsequent crash of United Airlines Flight 93 in Stonycreek Township in Somerset County. The Memorial is a respectful, somber reminder and tribute to the brave passengers and crew who thwarted the pending attack on our Nation's capital. It was also designated as a unit of the National Park system.
The memorial, with its first phase complete, is simple in design. It was created to serve as the ultimate resting place to those who gave their lives on board. Unlike many other memorials, it lets you into the lives of the heroic Americans on board. Visitors are encouraged to leave behind a written thought of thanks to those who gave their lives. The memorial is a continual work in progress and as donations and funding are made available, drafted plans are made real.
