Facility:Perkins House
Description:The Perkins House was built by James Perkins, the founder of Colfax, in 1886. A cabin on the grounds built in 1870 is the oldest standing building in Whitman County. The house was the center of Colfax society between 1886 and 1920.

Much work has been done recently on the Perkins house to restore it to appropriate Victorian colors. At the Ice Cream Social in 2001, Jeanette Sabo, granddaughter of James and Jenny Perkins, age 104, said that the house now looks just as she remembers it!
