South Portland Historical Society's
Engraved Brick Program
Leave Your Mark in History
The South Portland Historical Society operates a museum in the historic Cushing's Point House at Bug Light Park. The museum building was moved to this location, on the site of the former WWII Liberty shipyards, in 2009 and celebrated its grand opening in 2010. As the museum grounds are undergoing a transformation, you are offered the opportunity to support this effort and leave your mark in history for generations to come by purchasing an engraved brick to be placed within a walkway at the museum.
Bricks are offered in two sizes:
- 4 x 8 inch. Cost including engraving is $150.
- 8 x 8 inch. Cost including engraving is $250.
Your brick may be engraved with your name of choice - for example, your own name, the name of a beloved ancestor, a family member, or with the name of someone special you wish to recognize.
- A 4 x 8 inch brick can accommodate up to three lines of engraving, with up to 18 characters per line, including spaces.
- An 8 x 8 brick can accommodate up to six lines of engraving, with up to 18 characters per line, including spaces.
Should you wish to purchase a brick in honor of someone, the Society will notify the individual or a family member of your gift.
Please enclose a check for your purchase, along with the completed form, and send to South Portland Historical Society, 55 Bug Light Park, South Portland, ME 04106.
