1. De L Aigle Brick Yard Marker
Inscription. In 1808, Nicholas de L' Aigle, a French refugee, established brick yards 1/4 mile south which furnished Augusta with building brick for 75 years. River clay was "pugged" to the right constency in a cylindrical vat by a stone turned with mule-power and hand-moulded into bricks which were air-dried , built into kilns, and fired. Many old houses in Augusta and elsewhere in Georgia and the Carolinas are built of these bricks.
