Historical Genuine Clinker Bricks

The name “clinker” comes from the sound they make when banged together, being heavier than regular building bricks. We will be delighted to help you with custom matching for your Craftsman house restoration or new build, so when you buy bricks they will already match your project. We also ship nationwide direct to your job site. When you buy reclaimed bricks from Historical Bricks, you know you’re getting something special.
