The historic Derby Green has a new monument after volunteers from the Derby Fire Department planned, raised funds and built the 9-11 Memorial. The formal dedication took place on a grey Sunday morning (November 16, 2014). The video and pictures above will give you a feel for the emotional morning.


The Derby Fire Department  felt it was necessary to create a monument to memorialize all those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001. The Fire Department applied to the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey to receive a steel artifact. Fortunately the Fire Department was approved and received a section of steel beam from the world trade center site. The Fire Department is now in the process of constructing a public monument for permanent display on the historic Derby City Green .

The Monument will be constructed on the Elizabeth Street side of the Green between the Fireman’s Memorial and the Korean War Memorial. (See more plans on the Valley Indy story )

A major fundraising source for the construction and maintenance will be the sale of etched bricks. These bricks will form the walk way to and around the monument. The cost of a brick is $100 dollars and can be etched to memorialize a company, group, individual, family, or loved one. The brick size is 4” x 8” and can have up to three lines of text with up to eighteen characters on a line.

Payments should be by check and can be mailed to:
