SALT LAKE CITY -- A four and half ton section of the World Trade Center has come to rest at the Fort Douglas Military Museum Monday.

Fort Douglas is the first in the state to acquire one of the nine pieces of foundation saved from the Twin Towers after the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attack.

“We’ve lost many of our best and I am grateful for this dedication, for this memorial as a representation of all those who have served and the families that they represent,” said Gov. Gary Herbert at the dedication of the monument Monday.

The monument is open to the public Tuesdays through Saturdays between noon and 5 p.m. Admission is free.

The museum is located on the upper campus of the University of Utah, 201 Presidents Circle, at 32 Potter Street.
