Michigan State College MSC Smokestack Brick

Product Description

Michigan State College - MSC Smokestack Brick

Item Details:

The original "MSC" smokestack at Michigan State University's Shaw Lane Power Plant was demolished in the summer of 2011. This beloved landmark was erected in 1952 and was in use, supplying energy to campus, until 1975 when the power plant could no longer keep up with demand. The letters "MSC" were embedded into the structure, prominently declaring the Michigan State College of Agriculture and Applied Science.

As the smokestack was dismantled, a portion of the bricks were carefully preserved and left in their original condition. Some bricks still have fragments of mortar attached, just as they were when the smokestack stood sentry over campus. Each brick is a piece of Spartan History.

Your purchase includes one brick with a numbered certificate of authenticity signed by Cynthia A. Ghering, Director of University Archives & Historical Collections at Michigan State University.

Condition:

Bricks vary in size and condition. In most cases mortar is still attached and small pieces may come loose in shipping.
