Glenn Historic Site plans wall of memories to be built from bricks purchased by the public

Published: February 20, 2012 8:15 AM

NEW CONCORD Area residents have a dual opportunity to support an educational mission while making tangible the memory of a special occasion or a loved person.

The John and Annie Glenn Historic Site soon will start building a wall of memories. A long-lasting, memorial courtyard will be erected near the main entrance of the house that was the boyhood home of former astronaut and Senator John Glenn. The house, which was moved to Main Street, is now the John and Annie Glenn Historic Site.

The wall will be constructed of bricks. Members of the public who wish, for example, to memorialize a family member may purchase a 4-by-8 inch brick for $90. The bricks will include up to three lines of wording with as many as 20 characters per line. (A space or punctuation mark counts as a character.)

All proceeds will support the educational mission of the Historic Site. For more information, call the Historic Site, 826-3305.

Since opening in 2002, the John and Annie Glenn Historic Site has hosted nearly 50,000 visitors.
