Heritage Bricks and the Flag Monument
 

Imagine a new brick pathway inviting visitors to the Yamhill Valley Heritage Center. Your name, your family's name, or an honored loved one's name can become a part of Yamhill County history. These engraved Heritage Bricks will be incorporated into various architectural projects, such as walkways, walls, and the base of a flag pole already erected at the Heritage Center. For a donation of $100, your brick will be engraved to your specifications and become a permanent part of the Heritage Center, creating an amazing tribute to our ancestors, town fathers, loved ones and Yamhill County families. With your donations, you partner with us in building the future of our society. See the Order Form for details.
