In the spring of 2004, the Mayor of Fenton, Missouri, Dennis J. Hancock and the members of the Park Board (Board Chair, Glen Scholle, members Jeff Bodi, Charles Jahneke, Mike Lucas, Steve Covault, Gregg Cleveland, Diana Biras and Nannette Clark), determined that their city should build a memorial to the victims of the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. It was also determined that the memorial would honor police, firefighters, EMS personnel and all veterans. The Heroes Memorial is located in Fenton City Park, 1215 Larkin Williams Road, Fenton, MO 63026.
The Heroes Memorial includes:
A granite globe that "floats" on a thin curtain of water and spins easily at the touch of a child's hand
A black granite wall honoring the victims of the September 11th attacks. Engraved in the granite are the locations of the attacks. In front of the wall is a sculpture symbolizing the "Twin Towers"
Two black granite pilasters listing the names of area police, firefighters and military personnel killed in the line of duty
A beautifully landscaped stone planter wall containing plaques honoring veterans, police, firefighters and the victims of 9/11
Flagpoles sponsored by local organizations
Granite benches and pillars
Hundreds of engraved brick pavers honoring the heroes involved in the lives of our Community
