Our Historic Brick Streets
After nearly a half-century of mud and muck, the City civilized the downtown streets with brick pavers. Read the fascinating story on the Rogers Historical Museum website by taking the link.
(The intersections were converted to patterned concrete in the last 10 years in order to update infrastructure and stockpile bricks for use in repairs.)
