Be a Foundation Builder of the Museum:  Buy a Brick

Restoration of Dr. Justina Ford’s historic house is underway. These renovations are made possible by grants from the State Historical Fund and The National Trust Partners in Preservation. The first phase of the renovations revealed more structural issues and additional costs.
 

Phase one, which included exterior paint removal, revealed the poor condition of the original brickwork. An estimated 400 bricks will need to be replaced or require reverse facing. Each replacement brick costs $25 each, and an additional $10,000 is needed to complete the project. The museum is extending an invitation to all of its supporters to purchase a brick (or several) to sustain the legacy of Dr. Ford and contribute to the future of the Black American West Museum & Heritage Center.
