We’ve officially launched the video component of the Old Marshall Jail Brick Project. Emily has the camera set up today and tomorrow early evening.
We are collecting stories about the jail and the people who spent time here.
If you have something to say or know someone who does, come on down or get in touch with us.
This is an important part of this project and we would appreciate people in Madison county spreading the word about it. Any story is appreciated. We would like to hear from both sides of the bars.
The history of this place is important to us and we are working hard to record it before it is lost.

As someone who was raised in Virginia and cares deeply about that place and it’s history… and recognizes the complicated aspects of that history… I stand fully and 100% against white supremacists and nazis. Completely.
We are making a monument right now in my home of Marshall. It’s a monument to the people of this world. It’s a monument about this worlds history, the current events of our time and our hopes for the future. It’s a monument to human experiences, to the feelings and expressions of the residents of this planet. Most importantly it’s a monument about love, inclusion, and the strength of community.
We will be open and making bricks this coming Friday and Saturday from 11-7 for anyone who has something to say. Please make your voices heard. All are welcome.

Steve and Elizabeth came to the brick factory yesterday! They brought me a cube of the newest community bricks and made some bricks of their own for the Old Marshall Jail Brick Project.
Thanks ya’ll for being a part of it all and helping me make this thing a reality. I couldn’t do it without you… nor would I want to!

I would like to publicly and fully extend such a heartfelt expression of gratitude to the whole Taylor Clay Team!!! We had such a legendary day making bricks in preparation for the upcoming Old Marshall Jail Brick Project. I’m totally and completely in love with this place and the people who make it so special. I feel so extremely fortunate to have all of you in my life and am constantly in amazement of your generosity towards so many people in this world. Thanks for making it a better place one brick at a time.
