All Saints Lutheran Church
All Saints Lutheran Church

Listed in 1982

Dedicated in 1918, the church is a small scale replica of the 13th Century Gothic church of Denmark. Primary construction materials are wire cut brick and Del Norte Lava Stone, native to Colorado. Labor, equipment and materials were provided by Danish Luteran immigrants of the region.

The sanctuary, located on Eben Ezer's grounds at 122 Hospital Road, was designed to reflect the presence of the sacred with a sence of intimacy by use of art glass, stained glass, gothic arches, and limited seating.

The pipe organ, installed in 1920, is a Moller organ from Hagerstown, Maryland. Moller donated most of the cost of the organ which still provides music for worship services. The bell tower was added in 1952, resembling a previous seperate structure west of the church.

Listed November 5, 2001

The existing building was dedicated in April, 1929, on the site of the first high scool in Morgan County.

It is located in the 400 block of Clayton Street. The former school building was destroyed by a fire in December, 1927.

It has stood vacant since 1996 when elementary students began classes at the Beaver Valley Elementary School. In March of 2018, the Brush Chamber Foundation acquired ownership and is working at restoring the building

Knearl School
Knearl School

Listed January 31, 1997

Knearl School was originally built as a grade school for students first through eight grades, and was used until 1971. The building, located in the VFW Memorial Park, was then donated to the City of Brush, who donates use of the property to the Brush Area Museum and Cultural Center.

The property was deemed eligible for the National Register because of its association with the history of elementary education in Brush.
