Sandy Hook Permanent Memorial

The Sandy Hook Permanent Memorial is at 32 Riverside Road, Sandy Hook, Connecticut 06482.

When traveling east on Riverside Road, its entrance is the fifth driveway on the right past our main station (18-20 Riverside Road). 

The memorial opened on Sunday, November 20, 2022, and honors the 6 female educators and 20 children who died on Friday, December 14, 2012, at Sandy Hook Elementary School. 

In season, it is open daily from dawn to dusk. It will be closed during the winter months.
