Murrah Building stone

On Oct., 6, 2015, a 33-member Oklahoma delegation visited the NFHC and donated to our collection a piece of granite from the lower portion of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Office Building in Oklahoma City. The building was the site of the April 19, 1995 terrorist bombing where 168 people died and more than 800 others were injured.

It was the deadliest terrorist attack on American soil prior to the Sept. 11, 2001 attack on America. It remains the deadliest act of domestic terrorism in American history.
