Day 1

Somerset County, Pennsylvania has been called “America’s County” because of the two life-changing events in which heroes lived and died in 2001 and 2002. We invite you to come and experience the places and hear the stories.

Pay your respects at the Flight 93 National Memorial including both the Memorial Plaza with the Wall of Names of the Heroes of Flight 93 and the Visitor Center, dedicated on Sept 10, 2015. The exhibits in the Visitor Center bring back poignant memories as well as providing new insight into the events and the heroes of Flight 93. The Tower of Voices is now fully installed and a visit there will complete the visit to this touching memorial. Each tour member receives a commemorative magnet “Remember the Heroes of Flight 93.”

Next, you will enjoy lunch at the Our Coal Miners’ Café. (L)

In the afternoon your spirits will soar as you visit the Quecreek Mine Rescue site where, on July 28th, 2002 nine miners were miraculously rescued from 240 feet beneath the earth in a farmer’s field just outside of Somerset. Hear of the events from the time the accident occurred until the last miner was brought up and you will understand that God was at work here. The rescue site has been developed into a beautiful garden and you will see the actual rescue capsule, the broken drill bit and many more artifacts from the Quecreek rescue and mining in general in the Educational Visitor Center.

At Moo Echo Dairy you will find a wide variety of Bulk foods, baked goods, deli and Moo Echo’s own ice cream. Each passenger will receive an ice cream.

Visit the Flight 93 Memorial Chapel, which was dedicated, on the first anniversary of 9/11 to honor God and the memory of the 40 heroes of Flight 93. In the chapel you see many moving mementos donated by family members and others who wish to honor the heroes.

Hearts are touched as you visit the chapel and the Flight 93 Crew Monument in the garden area behind the chapel. Donated by United Airlines Flight Attendants Cause Foundation and dedicated on 9/11/2006, the monument entitled “Forever in Our Hearts” is a 16 ton black granite obelisk.
