The world virtually stopped on September 11, 2001. Ten years later, Rutherford County has a piece of history as a part of a 911 Memorial.Â A 3,000 pound I-beam from the World Trade Center is on display at the Rutherford County Sheriffâ€™s Office. From Tower 1, the memorial will become a historical landmark in Rutherford County.
The cost is expected to be about $30,000 and the county invites you to be a part of it.Â The sheriffâ€™s office is selling bricks at $100 for an 8×8 and $50 for a 4×8 brick to help fund the monument.Â All monument donations are being accepted.
If you are interested in contributing, call Sgt. Jimmy Cassidy at 904-3018, Deputy Greg Dotson at 904-3033 or Deputy Jim Noe at 904-3019.
The monument design is impressive!
