Mattapoisett Historical Commission

Commemorative Granite Bricks

The Mattapoisett Historical Commission is offering an opportunity to purchase commemorative granite bricks in honor of family, friends, or events. Inscribed bricks have been placed in Shipyard Park, Ned's Point, the Town Hall, Tinkham Pond, and the Herring Weir. 

The Mattapoisett Historical Commission has been at the forefront of this project for the last fourteen years. Over five hundred bricks have been placed during that time, and installed in partnership with the Mattapoisett Highway Department. The cost of each brick is $55. 

The brick may be inscribed with up to three lines, each line containing no more than 16 letters per line, including spaces and punctuation. Currently, there is available space for bricks to be installed at Shipyard Park. Please note, the Mattapoisett Historical Commission reserves the right to omit any wording deemed inappropriate.
