(09/11/12) - A local museum is remembering those who lost their lives in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
Castle Museum of Saginaw County History is introducing a new World Trade Center exhibit.
The main attraction is a part of aluminum cladding that is believed to have come from a window frame on one of the towers.
The artifact was received through a program run by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.
It will be on display at the museum permanently.
"You want to treat it so delicately because it does represent the lives of 3,000 people," said museum president Ken Santa. "I mean, it's just a mangled piece of aluminum and it's bent and it's marked up, but that aluminum is the lives of 3,000 people on that day, Sept.11, 11 years ago, so we have to treat it with a lot of respect."
The metal piece is 5 feet long and 4 feet wide.
