The eagle sculpture, with a beam from one of the fallen World Trade Center towers, is set against views of New York City. The Park System will host a 9/11 Memorial Ceremony at Mount Mitchill on Tuesday, September 11 at 7:00pm. Mount Mitchill will be open with extended hours, 8:00am-11:00pm, from September 9-11, 2012.

Monmouth County’s 9/11 Memorial has three symbolic components: a timeline walkway to recollect the events of September 11, 2001; a stone base carved with the names, ages and hometowns of the 147 county residents who lost their lives that day; and an eagle sculpture with a beam from one of the fallen World Trade Center towers. Set against views of New York City, the memorial honors both the lives lost and the fearless display of heroism by rescue teams and citizens who responded to the tragedy. Monmouth County’s 9/11 Memorial was dedicated in 2005 and made possible through donations to Monmouth County’s 9/11 Memorial Committee.

Mount Mitchill Scenic Overlook will have extended hours on Sunday-Tuesday, September 9-11, from 8:00am to 11:00pm, to provide the public with additional opportunities to visit the 9/11 Memorial.
