PITTSBORO --A piece of the World Trade Center wreckage is being delivered to Chatham County as officials prepare to develop a 9-11 Memorial. It will be displayed in separate ceremonies on Saturday in Pittsboro, Goldston and Siler City.
When constructed, the Chatham County 9-11 Memorial will serve as an historic memorial for local residents and visitors to commemorate the emergency responders and others who lost their lives on Sept. 11, 2001.
County Fire Marshal Thomas Bender said the county requested the piece of the World Trade Center some time ago, but had to go and pick it up on Thursday.
Emergency responder groups, county staff and community groups are helping to plan the 9-11 Memorial Tribute Trail and the memorial, including finding a location and raising money to develop the site.
