Plainville Brick Company, Inc.

The relationship between Plainville Brick and Berry traces back to the early 1900s, when Martha Berry would drive her Ford to visit owner Newt Legg to discuss the building materials she needed for campus.

Since those early days, the company has continued to support Berry's construction needs and has also funded scholarships for students in need. Many buildings on our campus have bricks supplied by Plainville Brick - one of the most recent projects being the restoration and repair of Krannert Center.

Thank you to Plainville Brick for all you've done for Berry students over the years, and for helping make our 2020 Mountain Day possible!
