Located at 440 Mill Road, next to Heritage Park.
The Absecon 9/11 Memorial located in Heritage Park, along Mill Road, showcases a 16-foot beam from the 39th floor of the South Tower of the former World Trade Center. This is the largest artifact from the former World Trade Center in all of South Jersey and Absecon is honored to have received this beam. Absecon’s 9/11 Memorial Founders Committee worked diligently designing and constructing the Memorial with donated time and materials. The Memorial was completed and dedicated in a ceremony held on September 11, 2016.
The 9/11 Memorial in Absecon is listed on the State Registry. Directional signs have been placed so that area residents and tourists can locate the Memorial.
A program is held each year to remain committed to honor the people who were lost on September 11, 2001, including the first responders who paid the ultimate sacrifice and those who continue to face challenges from that day.
