Memorial Brick Walkway to Honor Hudson River Mill Workers

The Hudson River Mill Museum is committed to restoring the former International Paper office building at 17 Pine Street in Corinth, New York and repurposing it to serve as a museum that interprets the history of the paper industry in the Adirondacks and also celebrates the long tradition of paper making at the Hudson River Mill.

You can support these efforts while honoring the memory of your family member or loved one who worked at the Hudson River Mill with the purchase of a commemorative brick that will be inscribed with their name.

The bricks purchased during this fundraising program will be used to restore the central walkway from the sidewalk on Pine Street to the steps that lead to the front entrance of the former IP building. It will be considered a walk of honor that will recognize the thousands of men and women who spent much of their work lives at the Hudson River Mill during its 133-years of operation. The Museum plans to hold a dedication ceremony for the walkway in October.

The brick program will begin on June 15 and will remain open thru September 1, 2019 unless bricks purchased before that date fill the space dedicated to the walkway. In that case, the program will end before September 1.

The cost for each brick is $100.00. The Click HERE To Order Your Bricks button at the bottom of this page will bring you to our external website where you may order bricks and also purchase commemorative keepsakes for yourself.

How to Inscribe Your Brick

Each brick measures 4x8 inches and offers 3 lines of inscription with 18 characters per line. Only one brick size and color are being offered.

The Museum seeks to maintain the dignity of the memorial walkway by insuring some degree of uniformity in the appearance and information contained on each brick. There are the several preferred options for the inscriptions on the bricks you purchase depending on how many lines you wish to use.

ONE LINE:

• Worker’s Name

TWO LINES:

• Worker’s Name • Years of Employment, Total Years Worked, or Retirement Date OR • Job, Occupation or Place in the Mill Worked

All THREE LINES: • Worker’s Name • Years of Employment, Total Years Worked, or Retirement Date • Job, Occupation or Place in the Mill Worked
