The fun of Researching Ohio Bricks

I recently purchased three Ohio bricks (meaning that the word “Ohio” is stamped on them!) that I thought were really neat to have.  I knew I had some other older red bricks with different names stamped on them so I wanted to add the Ohio bricks to the small but now growing collection.

Sharing my photos of the bricks here. I cleaned them up with “D/2 Biological Solution”, a soft bristle brush, and regular water to rinse them off.  It will take awhile longer for them to lighten up more than they are now.  

Also sharing some great links that I found on the Internet about bricks made in Ohio:
