The Project began in 2005 and is a highlight for visitors and local residents when they visit the courthouse. Many used these engraved bricks for special occasions such as weddings, anniversaries, births, birthdays, graduations and other significant occasions. They make excellent commemoratives and memorials honoring special individuals.
Honor someone with a personalized, engraved brick in the historic brick walkon the grounds of the 1899 Union County Courthouse.
The Historic Brick Walk consists of a brick sidewalk from the east side entry of the Old Court House to a brick viewing area in front of the clock and bell exhibit structure. The Brick Walk is used to fund preservation projects of the Union County Historical Society and the Union County Mountain Heritage Center.
The bricks are full-sized red bricks the size of four inches by eight inches. Each brick can be inscribed with three lines of text and have 14 characters on each line (including spaces and punctuation). The text is deeply engraved in black lettering, centered in upper case type.
Text may incude names, dates, honorary or memorial inscriptions. Text can not include street addresses, phone numbers, websites, political messages or other material not keeping with the spirit of the Historic Brick Walk. The Historical Society reserves the right to approve or reject inscriptions.
