South Carolina  |  SC Picture Project  |  Richland County Photos  |  First Responders Remembrance Memorial

On September 11, 2011, a memorial to first responders was unveiled at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center. The memorial features two 25-foot-tall granite beams symbolizing the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center and two crossed steel beams salvaged from the World Trade Center site. The names of citizens and first responders who died heroically in the September 11, 2001 attack are etched in the memorial along with the names of Midlands first responders who have given their lives since that day.

Reflections on the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center

Photographer Benton Henry shares his experience photographing the memorial at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center: “This shot was made early one fall evening with Dan Henningan (one of the driving forces behind the memorial). Pictured in the photograph are two granite towers representing the World Trade Center twin towers. The two crossed beams in the middle are two support beams that were recovered from the World Trade Center.”
