Between the Steeple Building Museum and the Carpenter Building is the Memorial Brick Garden.  This garden contains handmade memorial bricks that are stamped with the names of BHHA supporters, such as the King and Queen of Sweden, and the names of loved ones. This garden is open to public year round. The cost of having a memorial brick made and installed in the garden is $150. Proceeds from these bricks are used to support BHHA activities, such as building restoration. For more details, call 309 927-3899 or email  With the 175th anniversary of the Bishop Hill Colony coming up in 2021, now might be the time to obtain a memorial brick.
