On September 11, 2001, terrorists gained control of the cockpit of United Airlines Flight 93 - intending to strike the U.S. Capitol Building - but were overwhelmed by the heroic passengers on board. The plane crashed in a quiet field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, killing all 40 passengers and crew members. In sacrificing their own lives, the Heroes of Flight 93 saved the lives of countless others.
The Remember Me Rose Garden was created as a "living memorial" to their heroism and provides a tranquil setting where all in need of healing can find peaceful sanctuary. The 13-acre site includes 400+ award-winning “Julie Andrews” pink rose bushes, 2,200+ flowering perennials, and a 30-foot fountain and reflecting pond surrounded by 40 memorial stones.
Patriots and gardeners alike visit 365 days a year to remember 9/11 and soak in the beauty of the gardens!
