Welcome to Colfax! In the heart of the Palouse.

Grounded in our hometown values and agrarian roots, we are the county seat of Whitman County. Come experience small town America,  with 2,846 residents calling Colfax home.

Colfax enjoys a healthy mix of history, unique locally owned businesses, rural and urban neighborhoods, amazing all season recreation, and culture.


People come from all over the world to photograph the Palouse, ride bikes on our network of trails and gravel roads, hike or snowshoe on area trails and play in nearby lakes or rivers. Enjoy our Street art and galleries, eat and shop at unique locally owned businesses. Visit the Perkins House for a tour of our founder's Victorian mansion or book a Haunted Hospital tour of the amazing Saint Ignatiaus Hospital.

We look forward to seeing you soon. Come Explore Colfax!
