As a historic building getting close to its 165th year, Old Brick requires constant maintenance and vigilance to maintain this historic treasure. We have recently embarked on a project to protect the foundation of the building from water damage by shoring up the Clinton St. hillside with a structural support wall and re-routing all of the water drainage across the entire Old Brick property. This project beginning fall of 2019, will be a significant undertaking and will include adding a water-permeable patio to the front of Old Brick to handle all of the water drainage for the entire property. We are excited at Old Brick that we were able to find environmentally-friendly solutions to our water drainage challenges! Our new patio will not only add a new "face" to Old Brick but will truly function as a water filtering and drainage solution for our corner of the world. Our brick campaign-Strengthening our Foundation: Brick by Brick will help raise funds for this project.
Each brick will be engraved with a message of your choosing (3 lines with 20 characters total). The bricks are $200 each and limited in supply. They may be purchased by downloading the form above and mailing to our office (26 E. Market St. Iowa City, IA 52245). Orders may be paid via check or credit card by calling our office at (319)351-2626. Benches may also be purchased for the patio and include an engraved plaque.
