The Woodford County Historical Society has a program that will allow you to leave a permanent mark on Woodford County History: a brick engraved with your name or the name of someone you wish to honor or remember.
Each brick measures 4"X8"X2½" and is an attractive antique red color which closely matches our brick building. The engraved bricks will be placed at the base of the flagpole located at the southeast corner of our property at 121 Rose Hill in Versailles.
An engraved brick may be the perfect way to "leave your mark" on Woodford County history, or a way to memorialize or honor someone else. These bricks also make great gifts for that hard-to-buy-for person who "has everything." We'll send a Certificate of Ownership for each brick to you or to the person you designate.
The minimum donation for each engraved brick is $150.
NOTE: The Woodford County Historical Society is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Donations are tax-deductible as permitted by law.
How Your Donation will be Used
After deducting the cost of the brick, the engraving, and installation, your donation will be used to continue the programs and activities of the Woodford County Historical Society, including the daily operations of the Society's library and museum.
Certificate of Ownership
Each brick comes with a special Certificate of Ownership. The certificate will be sent to you or to the person you designate.
