Have you ever wanted a piece of history for your own personal collection? Well, now is your chance! The Richland County Land Bank is offering bricks from the former Westinghouse "A" Building to the public for free!
For those unfamiliar with the Westinghouse "A" Building, it was an iconic building in downtown Mansfield that once employed thousands of people in Richland County. However, the building has been recently demolished, and the Land Bank is now making its bricks available to anyone who wishes to acquire one beginning Monday, March 6th.
The best part? It won't cost you a dime! All you have to do is visit the former Westinghouse site on East 4* Street, and you may find a brick on pallets outside the fenced area surrounding the site, from Monday through Thursday, 8:30 am to 3:00 pm (weather permitting).
The only catch is that the bricks are available on a first-come, first-served basis. So, if you're interested, make sure you get there early! It's a great opportunity to own a piece of history from the Richland County area.
The Land Bank asks that those seeking a brick from the "A" Building be respectful of the continued demolition taking place at the former Westinghouse site. Unauthorized individuals are not permitted to enter the fenced area or any active Westinghouse work area without express, written permission from the Land Bank.
So, grab your hard hat and work boots (just kidding, you won't need them), and head over to the former Westinghouse site to claim your piece of history today!
