History

In 2009, Overland Park firefighter Trevor Miller and Capt. Paul Bishoff made an application to the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey for a piece of steel from the fallen World Trade Center towers.

MIQ Logistics volunteered to deliver the piece of history and SFS Architecture designed the memorial.

More than a dozen other companies and individuals volunteered time and resources to build the 9/11 Memorial.

The city of Overland Park is honored to be the caretaker of the 9/11 Memorial, and is grateful to all the companies and people who provided an invaluable contribution to a lasting tribute that will serve as a reminder for decades.
