Jimmy Peek sent us an interesting story about the bricks used in the construction of the Memorial Building. I thought I'd share:
"Someone was hoping that rock from the house by the Hutchins' was from Miller Creek. This got me thinking about something and I got one for you.
The bricks for the Memorial Building! They were hauled in and dumped in the Park in the mid-40’s. They still had concrete stuck on them. The City paid 1 cent a brick to get them cleaned. I made a few dollars cleaning them with a hatchet. Then the Memorial bldg. was built out of them. I’m pretty sure I know where the bricks came from. See if you can find out. The only people I can think of that might know is my cousin Margie Allen or Sandy Lambeth might know. There is some history for you to dig into."
Thanks for the tidbit of history Mr. Peek. Wow, a few dollars worth for three hundred bricks~
