Portrait of Hoosier Poet James Whitcomb Riley

There is no supernatural on Colfax. It's just natural. Larry Steele dropped by the Colfax Museum the other day. He was the first person to ever comment aloud on the Historic Route 40 in Indiana china plate on display, and noticed Hoosier Poet James Whitcomb Riley's face on the plate, which also noted his childhood home was along U.S. 40 in Greenfield. He chuckled aloud, "You know that new google app that matches your face with someone in a museum? Guess who I got? James Whitcomb Riley!"

East Colfax Neighborhood Association shared D...

Our condolences to our local neighborhood D.A.V. Chapter in the passing of their Senior Vice Commander, George Parrish. Many of you have driven by the Disabled American Veterans D.A.V. building at 8720 East Colfax Avenue and not known much about the organization. The building also houses many nonprofits including the Burma Rangers, Street Fraternity and House of Purpose Church among others. Clyde Seiler Chapter 21 was chartered in Aurora, CO in 1973. The Chapter was named in honor of Major Clyde Seiler a member of the Colorado National Guard who was killed in action on March 27, 1969 when the F-100 aircraft he was piloting was shot down over Vietnam. The Chapter operated at various locations in Aurora until 1993 when the Chapter purchased the current site at 8720 E Colfax Ave., Denver, CO. In February 2011 a fire seriously damaged the building; however, after extensive repairs and remodeling we rededicated the building in January 2012 enabling us to continue our support of DAV's mission of assisting disabled veterans and their families. The Chapter's membership is approximately 1,800 and the Chapter is supported by an active Auxiliary Unit. Chapter 21 is an active organization with many members supporting their time and efforts toward veterans activities throughout the Denver metro area. The Chapter is the third largest in state and has donated thousands of dollars to veterans and civic causes. The Chapter co-hosts the hospitality room at the annual Department Convention and has had members serving in Department positions including Commander. We host an annual Chapter picnic and Christmas parties for children and adults and the Chapter and Auxiliary support numerous programs either individually or jointly which benefit veterans. Individuals should contact the Chapter office between 12 noon and 4:00 pm weekdays to learn more about Chapter 21. https://m.facebook.com/DAV-Clyde-Seiler-Chapter-21 http://www.davmembersportal.org/chapters/co/21/default.aspx dav21co@gmail.com

    DAV Clyde Seiler Chapter 21
    It is my sad duty to inform you that our Senior Vice Commander, George Parrish, passed away on Friday, January 12, 2018, after a battle with cancer. Godspeed, George.

Colfax Avenue Celebrates 150 years in 2018 with a wake for Schuyler Colfax

When gold was discovered in Denver in 1858, scores of miners came West looking for the Mother Lode. Colfax Avenue was the major artery linking them to the riches of the Rockies. Originally called "Golden Road", as well as Grand Avenue, Colfax Avenue had its name changed in 1868 to honor of Schuyler Colfax (pronounced SKY-LAR), a powerful Indiana congressman and Speaker of the House of Representatives at that time.
