A replica of the Twin Towers will be added to the sculpture park in New York Mills next summer, thanks to the introduction to welding students at the high school.


Every year, the introduction to welding students choose a structure to build as a team. In the past, the welding classes have built the Eiffel Tower and Duluth's Aerial Lift Bridge.

It was close to the anniversary of Sept. 11 last year when the welding class students made the decision to build the monument.
