The Auditorium built 1905, 1909-1911   ? for Dr. Zinkey by Coakley, Steve John (S. A.) Harris, Ernie Winston, and Kendall. The round roof rafters were built on the ground and then hoisted into place with two big hay derricks. It is 40x 120 feet. It has hosted many events:  meetings, memorials, dances, banquets, movies, roller skating, recreation, graduations, community meetings, plays, Chautauqua’s, parties, literary debates, and The Stockmen’s Ball & Banquet.  The stage curtains were installed in 1905. The first movies were shown in 1914.  On May 30, 1916, a comedy “Office 666” was shown. Before it was built the location was John Art Fitzpatrick’s livery stable.

 

The Rodeo Grounds are located just north of Collbran. The local 4-H fair, Lion's Club Rodeo (3rd weekend in August), and several gymkhanas are just a few of the events that are typically conducted each year.

The Stockmen's Bank building on Main Street now houses the Collbran branch of the Mesa County Public Library. Stop in and see Amanda Sheley, our friendly and knowledgeable librarian!
