Great news! The Colfax Museum, dedicated to Schuyler Colfax and the longest, wickedest (as in awesome) street in North America that bears his name, opens 11/18/2017! Join us 2:00-5:00pm on Saturday to celebrate the accomplishment, at 6109 E. Colfax Avenue in Denver.
Today a great mystery was solved. For years I had been trying to track down an old East Colfax motel called Charlie Chan Village. In my mind, I saw something mythical, like Grauman's Chinese Theater. The good news is Jennifer and Bonnie at the Aurora History Museum found something about it today! The (not so bad I guess) news is that it was a laundry service...
Black is the new Orange? I know Colfax Avenue is down in there somewhere...
