Monogrammed Brick Stories

About the Project

In 2012 the Oklahoma Historical Society invited those who purchased the monogrammed bricks paving the Red River Journey to share stories about the person or group their brick honors. Below is a list of those who submitted stories and the message shown on their brick. Click on the brick title to read the full story.

The Brick Story Project was made possible by a generous donation from Catherine Wooten.
