Inspired by the tragedy of September 11, 2001, a dedicated group of volunteers took on the project of creating the Concord Township Heroes Memorial. Led by former Township Supervisor Robert C. Mench, the group raised the necessary funds needed for the creation of the memorial and its construction began in 2004.
The American Hero Memorial was dedicated on November 14, 2004 and an American Hero Memorial Service is held each year in November. See below for details.
The monument honors all branches of the armed forces, law enforcement, fire, rescue, and emergency medical services. It was created to pay respect to those – both military and civilian, both professional and volunteer – who selflessly put their lives on the line in order to safeguard and protect. It is located near the Concord Township Public Works Garage at 675 Smithbridge Road.
Honor your veteran, fire or EMS volunteer, beloved family member, or other American hero
by placing their name in the Concord Township Hero Memorial.
