Stop by the historic Upper Brush Creek Schoolhouse anytime between 10 a.m. and noon to share history and refreshments with the Eagle County Historical Society. 

Bring your snowshoes (or borrow some from Sylvan Lake State Park) and take yourself on a winter history hike on West Brush Creek.

Check in first at the Sylvan Lake State Park Visitor Center. View our historic photograph display, then head on up to the school, just above the fork of East and West Brush Creeks. Historians will share stories of the building, and of the Brush Creek Valley’s agricultural history.
