September 11 Memorial, Freedom Grove, Reston

Bronze relief on Shenandoah boulder, 8 x 11"

Two Reston residents were on American Airlines Flight 77 that hit the Pentagon, Leonard Taylor and Norma Cruz Kahn. On October 6 Freedom Grove was planted near Brown's Chapel by the community of Reston as a memorial to all those lost on September 11, 2001. The bronze was commissioned by Reston Association and it was dedicated in May 2002.

  1. I designed and planted Freedom Grove. It was the least I could do since I was un-able to re-enlist in the service. I really like your plaque and it fits in well with the plantings. Tim Allison, former RA Horticulturist
