Sgt. Mark C. Palmateer 9/11 Memorial Park

Facility Information:

Corner of Old Hopewell Road and US Route 9 Southbound

General Information:

The Town of Wappinger owned Sgt. Mark C. Palmateer Memorial 9/11 Park serves as a memorial for Sgt. Mark C. Palmateer, the first Dutchess County soldier killed in the line of duty in the War on Terror, as well as all service members and first responders who lost their lives on and since September 11th 2001. Sgt. Palmateer, 38, originally from the Town of Wappinger, lost his life on June 26, 2008 during Operation Enduring Freedom in combat in Afghanistan. The park’s strategic location at the crossroads of Old Hopewell Road and US Route 9 makes it a true landmark for those traveling through Wappinger. Along side the park runs Sargent Palmateer Way, formerly Old Route 9N, which was officially named by the Wappinger Town Board in 2015.

At the center of the park sits a curved 13 foot section of steel recovered from the North Tower of the World Trade Center along with a bronze sculpture dedicated to Sgt. Palmateer. Memorialized pavers line the park’s main circular plaza with messages from members of our community.

The park is host to the Wappinger Town September 11th Remembrance Ceremony every year.
