The City of Columbus is offering everyone the opportunity to participate in the exciting bicentennial celebration in downtown Columbus while contributing to a more active lifestyle! The City is expanding our people trail and selling engraved bricks to commemorate the 200th birthday of the City of Columbus and Bartholomew County.  Customized bricks are a wonderful way to honor your family or business, commemorate an important occasion, or memorialize a loved one whether that is a family member, friend, or pet.  Your support will be a lasting legacy of your contribution to our community and our trail system.

Bricks will be 4 x 8 in size and be visible along the 1821 Bicentennial Trail along First Street from Water Street to Lafayette Avenue.  Each engraved brick sells for $100, regardless of the number of letters or lines, and allows for one, two, or three lines (your choice) of text with a maximum of 16 characters per line, including spaces and punctuation.
