Just found a brick stamped "Quaker" in Chester County PA. Does anyone have information/dates of operation for the Quaker Brick Company? Thanks for any help you can provide! kadaholo@verizon.net

  1. That's funny, I found a bunch of 'QUAKER' bricks at Fort duPont in Delaware the other day. They were at the shoreline of the Delaware River and (along with lots of other rubble) seemed to be used to create the foundation of a small peninsula where the fort used to be. I was looking for info as well.

  5. I actually just picked one up on a walk with my boyfriend yesterday. It's down by the old landfill in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. They have a nice sign about the factory at the end of the spur on the path. I believe the years were 1917-1979 or something like that. The bricks whent to a lot of buildings.
