The Fire Museum of Maryland is set to host Maryland’s 9/11 Rolling Memorial on Saturday, Aug. 15. The memorial is dedicated to the 69 Marylanders killed on Sept. 11, 2001, in the terrorist attacks at the Pentagon, the World Trade Center in New York, on American Airlines Flight 77 and on United Airlines Flight 93.
Maryland’s 9/11 Rolling Memorial features a 1918 Remembrance Bell that was made in Baltimore by the McShane Foundry. Four bronze plaques are inscribed with the names of the Marylanders who died on 9/11. The memorial display is seen as a tool for teaching the victims’ stories of sacrifice, loss and patriotism.
The bell will be on display from 10 a.m. until around 1 p.m.Saturday in the front parking lot of the Fire Museum.
Jessica Bentz, store manager at the museum, which is located on York Road in Lutherville, believes the rolling memorial is the perfect opportunity to raise awareness.
