Our Ongoing Projects

We have quite a few projects underway here at the Old Brick House. Here’s a brief sampling of what we have going on:

Gravestone Preservation Project:

Headed up by JoAn Jones, with estimated completion in August 2018. Designated donations are welcome and will go toward covering the expenses of the archeological study, plinth construction, relocation of the funerary markers, and design and creation of a colonial-style garden.

Furnishings:

This is an ongoing project to outfit the interior of the brick house with furnishings representative of the colonial and post-colonial eras. Designated donations are welcome.

Maintenance and Upkeep:

The Old Brick House is in constant need of maintenance and upkeep. In the near future, there will need to be significant work done to arrest deterioration of the interior and exterior brickwork. Designated donations are welcome.

Capital Projects

The Old Brick House Foundation is currently engaged in a capital fundraising campaign to construct an ADA-compliant outbuilding for use by groups visiting the Old Brick House.
