WALHALLA, S.C. (AP) - A new memorial to the almost 3,000 people who died in the 9/11 terror attacks should be open in upstate South Carolina next year.

The Independent Mail of Anderson reports (http://bit.ly/1tPhxf4 ) that ground was broken Thursday for the new $700,000 memorial in Walhalla.

The site will have artifacts from the terror attacks, including a steel girder from the World Trade Center, a stone from the Pentagon and dirt from a farm near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, where a plane hijacked by terrorists crashed after passengers took it over in 2001.

The memorial will also have an open-air amplitheater.

The plan is for the new memorial to be dedicated next Sept. 11.
