Steel Beams
from the
World Trade Center

Weirton Steel Corporation presented these World Trade Center steel beams to the Brooke-Hancock Veterans Memorial Park in memory of the victims of September 11, 2001.

The corporation retained these three World Trade Center beams for this memorial and recycled the remainder of them in its steel making process.
