Description: 3065 Mavis Road, Lot 20, Con 1 NDS. This was the quarry of the former Cooksville Brickyard. The Company went through several name changes. Built in 1912 as National Brick Co, it then became Cooksville Shale and Brick Co. in 1922. In 1924 it became the Cooksville Brick Company, and the Cooksville La Prairie Brick Co. in 1953, and then Domtar (Clay Division). The property was bought by Jannock when the quarry closed in 1995, and the area which covered 500,000 square feet, is now a mix of residential and commercial development. Description as of January 2011.
