Located at the Rutherford-Cleveland County line, Colfax Township was a response to the 1868 state mandate to divide North Carolina counties into townships. Colfax Township took its name from Schuyler Colfax, the 17th vice president of the United States (1869-1873). The 53.1 square miles of the township remain mainly rural, and most residents have lived here for five years or more. Such stability generates community pride and considerable participation in Big Days, the Colfax Free Fair, the Fiddler's Conventions, and other celebrations. The Colfax Museum reflects the interest in the area. Images of America: Colfax Township--a pictorial retrospective--celebrates the life and times of the area.
