One way to make sure you’re remembered

Brief by Central Staff

Arkansas River – February 2002 – Colorado Central Magazine

We know of ancient Egyptians from the inscriptions on masonry along the Nile, and now the Arkansas River Trust is offering a similar form of immortality: engraved brick pavers on a river walk from the Steam Plant through Riverside Park.

We don’t know what it cost an Egyptian to get his hieroglyph carved, but we do know modern prices — a 4″x8″ paver is $50, and an 8″x8″ is $75. The engraved message can be two lines long, with a maximum of 20 characters per line.

The money goes toward two summer projects: building the walkway, as well as stabilizing the river bank on the north side of the park to make the river more accessible. The goal is 500 personalized bricks — $18,000.
