Why are we constructing a
9/11 Memorial Building at the
Motts Military Museum?
To remember, honor, and pay tribute to our fellow citizens who were tragically killed on 9/11, our first responders who charged into the impending disaster, and the members of our military who selflessly rose to the challenge; and to teach visitors to our museum about our great American history and heritage through the proper display of the largest collection of 9/11 artifacts outside NYC!
