Brick has been a common building material in Charleston since thecolonial era. Between the 1740s and the 1860s brick-making, usinglocal clays and sand, became such a viable industry in the LowCountry that few bricks were imported.
Interpreters will be making brick out of clay and for those who don’tmind getting a little dirty, are encouraged to help out! In addition,the bricks made last April will be fired in a make-shift kiln.
