9/11 History in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor

Dedicated on September 11, 2011, the 9/11 Memorial of Maryland at Baltimore’s World Trade Center honors the extraordinary heroism, commitment, and sacrifice of Maryland’s 9/11 victims, rescuers, first responders, and their families.

Located at the base of the I.M. Pei-designed World Trade Center in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, the Maryland 9/11 Memorial, which was dedicated on the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks, stands as a stark and vivid reminder of one of our nation’s darkest days. After a national search, the Baltimore architecture firm Ziger/Snead was selected to lead the 9/11 Memorial of Maryland design. Twisted and fused together, the steel beams and damaged limestone pieces from the Pentagon’s west wall rest atop marble blocks bearing the names and birthdays of the 68 Marylanders who died in the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
