WEST CHESTER, OH (FOX19) - Many people across the Tri-State are finding their own ways to pay tribute to those who lost their lives on September 11th. The Grand Ole Pub in West Chester is unveiling a new memorial to remember the lives lost.
Owners of the pub, Pat and Bill Langdon say the people who lost their lives on 9/11 are heroes that need to be recognized.
"There was a woman in here today that teared up over seeing a firefighter that she knew that was on here," said Pat Langdon. "It is very touching."
The engraving of more than 3,000 names took 100 hours to complete.
"Every time I look at it I get chill bumps," said Langdon. "It is very chilling, people look at it and they cry because it is so unique."
Above the list of names is the pub's 9/12 wall to honor the firefighters, police officers and other emergency workers that came to the aid of thousands the days after the 9/11 attacks. The memorial is already having an impact on restaurant customers.
"It's an incredible thing to do, to keep this memory alive," said Rob Baldwin, restaurant customer.
