ALPINE - The City of Alpine welcomed a piece of history to their town this weekend.

It's a structure beam directly from the World Trade Center.

The beam arrived on Saturday after being driven all the way in from New York by two Border Patrol Agents.

When they arrived at the Brewster County Line, there was a procession through Alpine to the Border Patrol Station.

On September 11, a dedication ceremony will be held as the artifact is put into its permanent home at the Alpine Border Patrol station.
