The Colfax Museum is a History Museum dedicated to Schuyler Colfax and Colfax Avenue: the Longest, Wickedest Main Street in America which bears his name, running through Golden, Lakewood, Denver, Aurora, Strasburg, and Bennett, Colorado. The Colfax Museum provides an enlightening education regarding the rich history along the legendary strip and showcases an extensive collection of one-of-a-kind Colfax items and curiosities.
Jonny Barber started ColfaxAvenue.com in 2004, and began collecting Colfax stories and artifacts off the street from closing businesses — a street sign here, an awning there — until he had enough to open a museum in November 2017. The museum first got its' start at Ed Moore Florist, all thanks to owner Lydia Mary. From there the museum moved West to find a home inside the Pasternack's Art Hub in the 40 West Arts District in Lakewood, Colorado.
