Pathway of Inscribed Bricks
The Pathway to Liberty

The Pathway to Liberty is the brick sidewalk at the “front door” of the Virginia State Capitol, on the edge of Capitol Square at Bank and 10th Streets.   Individuals, families, departments, schools or school groups may request an inscribed brick on the Pathway to Liberty, and it is a meaningful way to honor or remember someone for years to come.

Inscriptions, which must be approved by a committee, may include name, date, school, and/or service to the Commonwealth.
