Gotchalk Bakery


Address: 503 & 505 Bear Creek Ave., Morrison, 80465

Built ca. 1885. The site of the Morrison Stone, Lime, & Town Company. The kiln (built ca. 1878) made the mortar that was used in many of the houses that still stand today. Jonas Henry Schrock was believed to have had a saloon in this building. The Gotchalks started their bakery downstairs and lived in the one-and-a-half story rear apartment in 1889. Later, this building was used as the Morrison Post Office. At the present time it is a liquor store.
