Welcome Home

Welcome to Colfax! Grounded in our hometown values and agrarian roots, we are the county seat of Whitman County. We work to ensure a high quality of life for our 2,846 residents. With a healthy patchwork of history, business opportunities, neighborhoods, education, recreation, and culture, great things are growing here.  People come from all around to photograph the Palouse Country. Come to the Perkins House to pick up a map of "Photography Hot Spots on the Palouse" and "Washington State Scenic Byways Road Map".
