About Pogorelc Sanctuary
Pogorelc Sanctuary is also known as Brick Factory Sanctuary. The Orenda Wildlife Land Trust received the West Barnstable Brick Company site in March 2013 from the Pogorelc Family. This iconic firm closed in 1932. Walking trails now exist along the same route of former cart paths used by the brick company. This area includes a freshwater pond formed from an artesian well that was created by a test hole to determine the amount of clay present. The area flooded, forcing the company to close. The area has sweeping views of the Great Marsh.
