Brickyard Cove · Ferry Point Loop · San Francisco Bay TrailOnly expansive brown mudflats, backed by rolling hills ablaze with orange poppies in the spring, were found here at Brickyard Cove until the Santa Fe Railway came to Ferry Point in the early 1900s, three brick manufacturing companies arrived. The largest, Los Angeles Pressed Brick Company operated seven kilns turning out 40,000 bricks a day. The Los Angeles Brick Company became the Richmond Brick Company around 1915.
