I find Brickyards an interesting concept. We have a quarry right next to our house (literally about 1 mile from our house) and I have gone exploring there multiple times. It is basically some people who claimed a piece of land, started digging, put the rocks in a fire, and then put there name on the product to sell them. Yay! Exploiting natural resources! But I guess someone has to do it.
This brick in particular was extra crispy since it was found at the site of a house fire in Clovis, CA.
