Edward Tucker Contributes 9/11 Monument Design
Local resident and FEMA volunteer, Tom Bowen, contributed hundreds of hours clearing the World Trade Center 9/11 site. In his honor, Huntington, West Virginia was designated to receive the last remnant-artifact carried out of the WTC site: two railroad rails twisted from the weight of the wreckage at the lowest level of the subway/train station. Edward Tucker was asked by the Greater Huntington Parks & Recreation District and Bowen, to incorporate the rails into a Springhill Cemetery memorial. Ed’s design creates a visual connection to the bell tower and relocates the cemetery’s American flag to align the three sites.
