Michael J. Pulice, a veteran architectural historian with DHR, will present a free public program about how bricks were made and laid in the construction of the Valley’s many fine historic brick buildings. Pulice will pay particular attention to Rockbridge County, Buena Vista, and Lexington, where some of the leading brick masons of the period practiced their trade.
