Angel in the Palouse - Statue in Colfax Cemetery

A second angel statue I found gracing the pioneer portion of the Colfax Cemetery in the heart of the Palouse. The first angel statue is also holding children’s toys and is quite similar to this one. The town of Colfax is a quiet, friendly town of about 3,000 and was one of the pioneer communities of southeastern Washington state. The town was incorporated in November 1873 and vied with Pullman to become home to Washington State University, which was ultimately located in Pullman. But Colfax became the county seat of Whitman County. Several major highways traverse the town – Highway 395 runs through town as Main Street and at the north end of Main, Highway 195 meets Highway 26 heading west towards Othello. Highway 195 continues on it northward path towards Spokane a couple hours away. But it is SR 272 which heads east from Main Street (SR 272 is also called East Canyon Street) where you will find the Colfax Cemetery. There is quite a large section of the cemetery which is filled with graves of pioneer Washingtonians. Quiet, peaceful, beautiful and worth a visit.
