Legacy Brick Project
Become a historic part of the CFD Old West Museum! A personalized brick is the perfect gift for any Western History fan. Reserve an engraved brick for yourself, family and friends. Pay tribute to your favorite contestant or volunteer, honor a loved one or make your mark by leaving your own personal message on a brick prominently displayed at the front entrance to the CFD Old West Museum.
This new brick landscape project is creating an area where Museum friends and family can place their mark on history - a place visitors can go and reflect. Construction began this spring by Harold F. Johnson Masonry and is expected to be completed by Frontier Days. The bronze statue fountain “Wishful thinking” by Shalah Perkins will go back in as the center piece of the new brick garden. While over 60 bricks have already been sold, we will be placing brick orders periodically throughout the year.
Your name and personal message can be etched and preserved into a legacy brick! Contributions raised through the Museum’s Legacy Brick Project will go towards supporting Museum operations in the areas of education, exhibits and collections.
