Featuring the Tunnel to Towers Exhibit

Watseka First Trust Parking Lot, Rt 24, Watseka

The Tunnel to Tower Exhibit is a tribute to those that lost their lives on September 11, 2001. The high tech, 53-ft. tractor trailer transforms into a 1000 sq. ft exhibit and helps to further educate citizens around the country about the events of that tragic day. The exhibit includes interactive education, documentary videos and recordings of the first responder radio transmissions and interactive guided tours from FDNY heroes. This is an opportunity for Iroquois County to showcase history.
