History of Acme Brick Park:
The Acme Brick Plant was purchased in 1944 and it was the first plant purchased in a decade due to the Great Depression. It closed its doors in 1986. The City of Clinton purchased the property that the plant occupied, including the buildings where bricks had been made for decades. After purchasing the property, the City developed it into Acme Brick Park.
