Bricks on sale to help enclose the Hagood Mill’s Heritage Pavilion

PICKENS — The Hagood Mill Historic Site has a new fundraiser that people in area can participate in.

The Hagood Mill foundation has partnered with “That’s My Brick” to raise money through the sale of customized bricks where supporters can leave a long-lasting mark at the site. The money raised will go to enclosing the Heritage Pavilion. The Heritage Pavilion is a space that the site has for expanded programming like dance performances and workshops, concerts, lectures and other special events.

In July 2019, the day-to-day management of the Hagood Mill Historic Site was transferred to the Hagood Mill Foundation, a nonprofit organization. The Foundation is seeking ways to expand revenue. One of those ways is to rent out the facility for special events. To learn more about venue rentals, visit

In order to make the pavilion as attractive and functional as possible, the foundation sees the necessity to enclose the pavilion.

Plans have been drawn up to enclose the building. This is a costly endeavor, but the foundation is diligently working to realize it.

Local residents can help the Hagood Mill Foundation enclose the Heritage Pavilion by buying a personalized brick. Anyone can buy a 4-inch-by-8-inch brick for $50, which offers three lines of 18 characters. The bricks will be displayed at the entrance of the Heritage Pavilion for all patrons to see the individuals and businesses who have contributed to the effort. The first order deadline is Aug. 1.
