September 11 Memorial, New Milford

New Milford honors the victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks with a memorial overlooking a park and the Housatonic River.

The memorial features a flagpole with a pentagon-shaped base with a plaque reading, “In memory of September 11, 2001.”

Next to the flagpole, a plaque mounted on a small granite base reads, “This monument honors all those who lost their lives in New York, Washington, D.C., and Pennsylvania on that fateful day. It is also dedicated to all firefighters, police, EMTs, and other emergency personnel who lost their lives in service. Please respect their memory and this monument.”

The area surrounding the monument has also been decorated with a number of personal effects.

Immediately west of the monument, visitors can see Young’s Field, a New Milford recreational park, and the Housatonic River. The large hill in the background is Fort Hill, the site of a former Native American village.
