The largest brickworks in the world were at one time right in New Jersey!
In 1850, James Sayre of Newark and Peter Fisher of New York formed the Sayre & Fisher Co.
They opened in 1851 making bricks from the clay pits of Sayreville. Sayreville bricks were used
in the construction of many buildings, including the Empire State Building and the Statue of Liberty.
By 1913, they were producing 178 million bricks per year! The company stopped producing bricks in the early 1970s
