TULSA, Oklahoma -

Own a piece of Tulsa history by purchasing a brick from the fire-ravaged Barnard building. The Tulsa Public Schools system is selling bricks from 2 to 5 p.m. Friday, November 30 due to the "overwhelming" number of requests from students, alumni and staff of the former elementary school, according to a news release.

The bricks will cost $5 to the public and will be sold at the TPS Education Service Center, 3027 South New Haven Avenue, in the Cheryl Selman Room.

Only checks and cash will be accepted.

"I am not surprised by the large number of requests we have received for bricks from Barnard's many fans," said Dr. Keith Ballard, superintendent.

"Built in 1925, the historical building is home to powerful memories for the staff and students who called it home over the years. We know it won't bring back their school, but Barnard supporters will find comfort in having a memento from their cherished school."

The Barnard building was most recently home to the Tulsa School of Arts and Sciences. It burned September 5, and its demolition started in early October.

Students enrolled at the school were moved to the former Sequoyah building at 3441 East Archer Street.
