Our Mission

Commemorative Bricks

You can help support the Marcus Hook Plank House and honor a family member, friend or loved one at the same time by purchasing a commemorative Brick.

The "Plank House Walk," will be a prominent feature located in Marcus Hook's Historic River Front area. Guest visiting the Plank House Museum will be greeted by the Memorial Brick Walkway as they approach the front porch area.

The donation cost of each brick is $50.00. You can personalize your 4''x8'' brick with an engraved name, using 3 lines of lettering with 15 characters per line. Once purchased, your brick will be produced and stored until the “Plank House Walk” is ready for installation.

Thank you for supporting the Marcus Hook Preservation Society and its efforts to restore the Marcus Hook Plank House, located at 221 Market St. Marcus Hook, PA 19061. The MHPS is a 501c3 non-profit organization. Commemorative brick orders are classified as charitable donations by the IRS and are deductible during the calendar year in which they were purchased. To purchase a brick on the walk please email us at
