The formal end of the Ground Zero recovery effort was marked with the ceremonial removal of the "Last Column" from the World Trade Center site. This 58-ton piece of steel, rising over 36 feet high, is on view at in the 9/11 Memorial Museum and stands as a symbol of the spirit of unity and dedication that brought all of us together after 9/11. It still carries the markings and inscriptions recovery workers placed there, commemorating the sacrifices of so many.
The 9/11 Memorial and Museum honors all who perished in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 and February 26, 1993. Located in the heart of the World Trade Center site, the Memorial is a national tribute and a place of hope for the future.
