Rising from the Ashes into a New One World Trade Center at 1776 Feet.

Only in America can one wake in the morning to see a ABC News report on the top spire of the new One World Trade Center being set in place to soon make history as the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere. And as part of that report learn that a local Lynchburg Virginia company “Banker Steel”  supplied the custom designed steel for the foundation of that new structure. Top that with the fact that I was about to serve breakfast to the owners Don & Carol Banker and another wonderful couple from St Petersburg Russia. The conversation was wonderful and so informative. I learned that not only did the supply steel for the new Tower but the prior owner had supplied steel for the Twin Towers. I had no idea there was such a firm as Banker Steel in Lynchburg but then our home Rockwood Manor was designed by Robert Burkholder and built by a Pettijohn and both came from Lynchburg and we too believe our home was finished in 1876 and showed that though we had lost the Civil War we could still do Grand Things.

God Bless America!
One World Trade Center
