Brick Application Form
Williamson County Parks and Recreation (WCPR) is pleased to announce that local citizens and their families can purchase personalized, commemorative bricks for the new Williamson County Enrichment and Performing Arts Centers. The two buildings have been constructed on the old Battle Ground Academy (BGA) campus, a Franklin landmark institution founded in 1889 and located at 112 Everbright Ave. They join the thriving campus currently consisting of Academy Park Gymnasium, the Williamson County Public Library and Renaissance High School.
Commemorative bricks, from the old Fleming Hall building, have been installed as internal focal points within each center and will celebrate the history of the site while embracing the future community space the project will provide for years to come. WCPR director Gordon Hampton says the bricks will have wide appeal, stating, “We are hoping that all former and current BGA students and family will want to purchase bricks as a way to honor the legacy of the school, but we also want all local supporters of the arts and WCPR programs to buy legacy bricks.”
Single bricks are $100 each, and a special family placard (three bricks high and two bricks wide) may be purchased for $700. Several styles and background colors are available, and donors can choose to have their bricks placed in either the Enrichment Center or Performing Arts Center. For the brick application form, download a pdf brochure, or contact WCPR at (615) 790-5719, ext. 2032 for a brochure. A Gift Certificate may also be purchased.
