The city of Euless is the latest North Texas city to take ownership of an artifact from the World Trade Center towers.

Euless' piece is a 12-foot long beam from one of the twin towers weighing about two tons. The Fort Worth Museum of Science and History is installing one and a memorial site in Mesquite will also showcase a beam in a Sept. 11 memorial site.

The beam in Euless is being permanently installed in front of the city's Fire Administration Building, "as a memorial to the thousands of people killed on that tragic day," the city said in a news release.

The city will hold a public ceremony dedicating the piece Sunday morning. The city said a significant portion of the ceremony will occur at 7:46 a.m., the time Flight 11 crashed into the north face of Tower 1.

The ceremony will include a Bell Ceremony by the Euless Fire Honor Guard, Twenty-one gun salute by the Police Honor Guard, Taps will be played by a bugler and bag pipers will welcome and conclude the ceremony, " the city said.

The ceremony begins at 7:30 a.m. at the Fire Administration Building located at 201 N. Ector Drive.
