Owner description: The memorial site dedicated to those who lost their lives on United Airlines Flight 93, September 11, 2001.

I once heard a soldier being decorated for heroism say that the real heroes were the ones who were buried overseas and would never come back. This place evokes that same sentiment. We arrived at 2:55 PM and there is a talk by the ranger twice a day (1:00 and 3:00) which really made the memorial come alive. He talked about the people on the plane, their thoughts, their lives. He held up pictures of them so we got to know the real people. I would certainly recommend looking up the times of this talk and planning accordingly. In the midst of a peaceful Pennsylvania field these 40 people gave their lives rather than let further damage be done. You owe it to them to visit the memorial and say a quiet prayer of thanks.

The memorial is tastefully done and appropriate as a reminder of how the terrorist attacks affected our entire country.

This would have been a Five Star review, but it is unfinished an a bit of a drive to get here. There is currently not much to see, but still worth a trip out to this former farmland. There is information about the flight and also a memorial that follows the path of the crash landing.

The information center was not open yet and the ranger told me about other things that will be opening in the future. I plan on returning, but it is till worth the visit of this sad reminder of September 11, 2001.

This is a good memorial, outdoors, plenty of information. You walk down the path which takes you to see the path the plane took in the field and the crash spot is marked with rocks. The park rangers are knowledgable and helpful and it is a good memorial to those who lost their lives in PA on 9/11

The atmosphere was quiet and somber as you walked down the path to the memorial. The crew and passenger's pictures are displayed, as well as their names. There is a large rock in the field in front of still seen fire, tinged trees where the plane crashed.Thought provoking moments......Grateful to be an American!
