Abstract
Ongoing archaeological research at Scenic Hudson’s West Point Foundry Preserve in Cold Spring, New York, has permitted systematic collection of data related to fire and common brick brands that appear throughout the foundry’s campus. Archaeologists have begun to correlate the varied ceramic building material with periods in the evolution of this 19th-century industrial landscape. Hudson River Valley brick making provides an interesting comparison to the foundry’s history since both industries were tied to the overall development of New York City’s urban fabric.
