The Youngsville Historical Preservation Society (YHPS) is expanding their Pathways Through Generations Brick Campaign, which will start on November 21, 2022. These commemorative engraved bricks will be laid on the grounds of the new Youngsville Municipal Complex at the clock roundabout at Lafayette and Iberia Streets. The bricks will be on the Lafayette Street side of the municipal complex. The original campaign’s bricks have already been installed.
The inscribed bricks will provide a legacy for future generations to view. This expanded campaign will be a little over three-hundred 4″ x 8″ bricks. The cost per brick is $100. The bricks will be installed once all available bricks are sold.
Acknowledgment cards for gift giving will be provided for each brick purchase that can be used to gift wrap.
Online ordering of the bricks will be available November 21, 2022.
