On Saturday, August 19, 2017, the Roxborough Area Historical Society (RAHS) hosted a presentation by Susie Trumble about the Silica Kiln.  The event was held at the Roxborough Fire Station which is located just across the parking lot from this historical landmark.  Several members of the community heard the story of the Roxborough's first industry, the Silicated Brick Company (1904 - 1917).  Art Tonelli, author of the newly awarded grant to stabilize the Silica Kiln, described details, fund matching requirements, and a timeline for implementation of construction efforts.  Many thanks to the local Roxborough Safeway for generously donated the breakfast treats.
