I found a brick in the backyard of an old house that says Ohio embossed in the center. Does anyone know who manufactured it? I've seen one other in person and both are in original condition, almost as if they were more for decoration than utility. Here is a link to the same brick owned by someone else:



  1. Yes, your brick was made by the Ohio Brick Co of Toledo, OH. Some manufacturers were a little more artful in the way they added their marks to their brick. OHIO was one --Ref: . Jim Graves, in his work, Brick Brands of the United States. Thanks for visiting - Fred

  2. I am trying to tell the age of an old farmhouse in Montgomery county Ohio....any suggestions of who I might contact to date the bricks in the chimney? They're orange-ish and irregularly shape with no inscriptions...
