Gwynns Falls TrailMore than a million bricks were used to construct M&T Bank Stadium in 1998. This reflects not only Maryland's architectural heritage, but also the history of the site, a one-time colonial brickyard. Alexander Russell produced bricks here, using clay from the banks of the Middle Branch, for some of Baltimore's earliest landmark buildings, like Johns Hopkins Hospital and the Shot Tower. Russell Street on the west side of Camden Yards is named for him. In the northwest corner, the J.S. Berry Brick Factory manufactured firebricks for ovens and kilns. By the 1870s, the clay was depleted and the brickyards closed. From many years, railroads and the Knabe Piano Factory, which ran two blocks along S. Eutaw Street, dominated the industrial complex.
