This Unexpected Piece Of American History Is Hidden In A Small Town Near Cleveland
Do you remember where you were at on September 11, 2001? Though long ago, this is a day many Americans will never forget.

The flight, which had been headed for San Francisco, made a U-turn just west of Cleveland as its hijackers set course for Washington, D.C. Though the tragedy may feel years ago and miles away from our cozy community, a little piece of that heartbreaking day in American history has found a home in a small town near Cleveland.
