About Colfax

Colfax is a city in Placer County, California, at the crossroads of Interstate 80 and State Route 174. It is part of the Sacramento–Arden-Arcade–Roseville Metropolitan Statistical Area. The population was 1,496 at the 2000 census. The town is named in honor of Vice President Schuyler Colfax (1869-73) a bronze statue of whom stands on Main Street near the railroad station.Some of the town's notable features include the newly restored train depot (which houses a number of shops), the downtown shops on Main Street, and Colfax High School, which serves a large surrounding area.

History

Originally inhabited by the Maidu Indians, by the mid 1800s the city site was known as Alder Grove; however, as development increased the city became known as Illinoistown. Later it was renamed Colfax after then Speaker of the House (and later Vice President) Schuyler Colfax who visited the town in 1865 while inspecting progress of construction of the Central Pacific Railroad, the western portion of the first transcontinental railroad. The city was the southern terminus of the Nevada County Narrow Gauge Railroad from 1876 until the railroad’s removal in 1942. Historic U.S. Route 40 also runs through the city as well as the more modern Interstate 80. The city is mentioned in Jules Verne’s book Around the World in Eighty Days.

The principal geologic structures present are granitic and metamorphic rock formations. Located approximately one mile west of Colfax is a branch of the Melones Fault, running in north to south direction.The fault runs through the old grammar school baseball field so they closed the school.

No movement has been recorded by the U.S. Geological Survey, and the faults are considered inactive. Bunch Creek is an active water source flowing south to eventually confluence with the North Fork of the American River.

Attractions

A notable attraction of Colfax used to be the popular restaurant Dingus McGee's, run by Dennis Freidig and Robert "Ol' Bob" Townsend. Dingus McGee's was a classic roadhouse tavern that nestled into the wooded hillside adjacent to Interstate 80; the tavern offered a variety of bar food from chicken wings to calamari, more exotic food like alligator nuggets and served up hefty steak, seafood and pasta entrees.

In November 1990 an image of the Virgin Mary was reported to have miraculously appeared on a wall of St. Dominic's Catholic church. It was later discovered that the image was really a projection caused by the sun passing through a stained glass window. Nevertheless, the Colfax Record (the local newspaper since 1908) reported up to 4000 people on a single Sunday went to view the shadow before it was pointed out to be similar to a Virgin Mary in one of the windows.

Colfax features a restored art deco single screen theater with a small display of historic movie equipment, as well as several bars and coffee shops. Current downtown Colfax was constructed in the 1860s. The Community Center, built during the depression as a school, is an example of streamline modern architecture.
