The W.K. Gordon Center for Industrial History of Texas at Tarleton State is celebrating the stones upon which our communities were built.
The exhibit—Thurber Brick Roads of Texas—explores the process of brickmaking and roads paved with brick. Workers at Thurber once produced 80,000 bricks a day.
Historical photographs and artifacts from the Thurber Brick Plant will be presented from Saturday, June 18, through Friday, Dec. 23.
The Texas Almanac records use of Thurber paving brick in Fort Worth, Dallas, Houston, Galveston and Beaumont.
The Dallas Opera House, Texas and Pacific Railway Station and First National Bank in Fort Worth were all built from Thurber brick.
