Brush, Co. was incorporated in 1884 and was named for Jared L. Brush. Brush came west to mine gold west of Denver in 1859, making him a "Fifty-Niner." Brush served as Weld County commissioner and sheriff, was elected to the state legislature, and served as Lieutenant Governor twice. The town was named for him in 1882. Brush hosts A Large Open Rodeo every July 2-4. The bronco-bucking action is open for anyone to enter. Festivities include a Cowboy Breakfast, ice cream social and an impressive fireworks display. Stop by during the last week of September for the annual Brush Balloon Bash, when brightly colored, gigantic hot-air balloons take flight.
