The Hazlet Township September 11 Memorial stands in memory to residents killed in the terrorist attacks on that day in 2001. Their names and portraits are engraved in the 9 foot, 11-inch stone monument, which is surrounded by nine benches in an 11-foot radius. Nearly all were Hazlet residents, and some were children of Hazlet residents or former residents.

The granite monument was designed by Joseph Uras, a former Hazlet resident, and donated at cost. Donations were raised from the businesses and residents to fund the monument. It sits near the Veterans Memorial monuments in a landscaped area between the Cullen Center and Union Ave. in Veterans Park and was dedicated on Sept. 11, 2003.
