How to Help

Greetings to all you lucky ones visiting The Brickyard’s website, we are taking this opportunity to make an appeal for your support.

As you may know, the Moses King Brick & Tile Works National Historic District, Corp. is making every effort to preserve this National Historic treasure and have it once again open to the public. Even in these trying economic times, we remain confident that with your help we can achieve this goalsteel portal being rolled

The happy news is, the campaign to have two rolled steel arch ways/portals fabricated and installed in one historic kiln was successful and the thank-you reception was well attended in spite of the weather.

A campaign has been launched to raise additional funds for continued renovation of that same kiln, re-roof the office and factory, and pour the concrete pad for public restrooms.

The Brickyard reminds us, success is gained one brick at a time. Please join The Brickyard success, and mail your Brick today with your tax-deductible donation to:
