9/11 Sites of Interest

Twin Towers Structural Beam, located at the St. Mary’s Byzantine Catholic Church Pavilion, is a structural beam from one of New York’s Twin Towers from the September 11th tragedy.  “Johnstown is one of only five cities in the U.S. that has an actual part of The Towers,” said Monsignor Balta, pastor of the church. 

“I had heard that pieces [of the Towers] were being sold for scrap and thought it was a tragedy.  I phoned Manhattan and had a truck pick up the remnant just before the embargo went into effect that afternoon.”  The structure, located beside St. Mary’s pavilion along with a flag pole, serves as a permanent memorial for the victims and heroes of 9-11.  Open dawn to dusk. St. Mary’s Byzantine Catholic Church Pavilion 411 Power Street and Fifth Avenue, Johnstown (Cambria City), PA 15906 814-535-4132
