East Lansing — Red bricks salvaged from Michigan State University’s Morrill Hall are on sale.
The Lansing State Journal reports that online sales by the school’s Surplus Store started Friday at $35 per brick.
Made of Upper Peninsula sandstone, the bricks come with authenticity certificates.
The 113-year-old Morrill Hall was demolished this year. A construction representative for the East Lansing school has said about 1,100 bricks will be sold to the public.
Morrill Hall was built in 1899 and 1900. Nicknamed “The Coop,” it once was a dormitory for female students and also housed home economics classrooms.
It was converted in the 1930s to classroom space and named for Justin S. Morrill, a former U.S. senator who pushed to establish land grant universities.
