Remembering September 11

The Hampshire County Arts Council is asking everyone who is part of the Hampshire County Community to share their recollections/experiences/reflections of September 11, 2001. The Arts Council will publish these remembrances on this website. Copies of the accounts will eventually be bound into a book and presented to the Hampshire County Public Library.

If you would like to participate in this community project and have Internet access, please email your submission to Please include your name, age and phone number (not for publication) so that we can contact you to verify your authorship.

Also, please indicate how you would like your contribution to be identified on the web site. Use one of these options: 1) full name and age, 2) initials and age, or 3) anonymous and age. You might also indicate your gender.

Written accounts can be mailed to HCAC, PO Box 624, Romney, WV 26757.

We suggest your account include information regarding where you were, what you were doing, and how you first heard of the attacks as well as your thoughts or feelings at the time. Information such as age and gender could be helpful for historians who might use these accounts for reference in the future.

The first accounts received are up on our site and will be on display in the Hampshire County Public Library through the month of September.
