Built by Herbert Rush Manufacturing in 1917, The Brush Factory initially manufactured clothes brushes for the United States Army during World War I. Later, this three-story building would manufacture various products, such as furniture and dolls. Today, the building has expanded from its initial blueprint and is home to beautiful artist lofts and a diverse collection of small businesses and studio spaces.
The 40,000 square foot Brush Factory is home to 17 unique art studios and artist lofts. An eclectic mix of small businesses and artist lofts, the building is equipped with a passenger elevator, storefronts, and manufacturing spaces with top-floor corner artist lofts overlooking Midtown Kingston and the Empire State Trail.
