Heritage Bricks

Heritage Bricks
First Town Downtown offers engraved bricks that are installed in the brick patio on the town green across from Central Street every June & October. When purchasing a brick, you can add up to 3 lines of 20 characters each to have a special message included. Select symbols are also available to be added. The cost of a heritage brick is $50.

Once your brick is purchased, you and the brick honoree will be invited to join us for an installation ceremony to give you the opportunity to present your brick and select its spot on the patio. Refreshments will also be provided.

A heritage brick is the perfect gift for any occasion. Make your friend, family, or business a part of Windsor history for generations to see and celebrate! If you purchase a brick as a present for the holidays, themed bags are available.
