DeKalb historian Steve Bigolin said the sunflower bricks were just one of many designs used around the outside of the mansion. He said many of these bricks were used around the corner tower of the mansion, and that the sunflower design was the only one that was made up of two bricks.
The below postcard, provided by the Joiner History Room, shows the mansion's tower that was comprised of bricks.
