Evan G. Maling Tribute Pathway

Honor the special people and events in your life with a commemorative brick on the Evan G. Maling Tribute Pathway. Purchasing a brick on the Tribute Pathway will help the Museum preserve the memories of those who were lost in the Holocaust and help us continue to teach universal lessons that combat hatred, prejudice, and indifference.

Each brick, personally inscribed, will add a touching permanent sentiment to our Museum campus. Tribute Pathway dedications start at $250.

  • 4” x 8” Brick – $250
  • 8” x 8” Brick – $500
  • 8” x 16” Brick – $1,000
  • 16” x 16” Brick – $5,000
  • 24” x 24” Brick – $10,000

Note: Brick orders take a minimum of six weeks to process and installations are done twice yearly in the Spring and Fall based on weather and ground conditions.
