KITTANNING, Pa. – The Traveling Vietnam Wall, officially referred to as “The Traveling Wall” landed in Kittanning Borough along South Water Street on Thursday morning.
The wall, which is almost 300 feet long and stands 6-feet tall, was escorted by local emergency officials and an extended line of bikers.
The wall was fully erected in Riverfront Park shortly after 1 p.m. with the extended help of local war veterans, and support families of currently deployed soldiers.
The wall is scheduled to remain in place at the Riverfront Park until Monday, June 10th. Visitors will be able to visit the wall, and take photos of over 50,000 names inscribed on the replica of the wall originally built of granite in Washington D.C.
Reports indicated the traveling wall was in Michigan prior to its appearance in Kittanning.
The traveling wall was featured in Butler County around 2-years-ago, which caused a traffic disturbance from Cranberry Township to Butler City.
