Monday-Friday7:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m.
The Jefferson County Historical Commission, working in conjunction with Caren Stanley, First Judicial District Administrator, Dan Cordova, Colorado Supreme Court Law Librarian, and Ronda Frazier, Jefferson County Archivist, has undertaken a project to create a “Judges’ Wall,” complete with photographs and biographical data for former judges in Colorado’s First Judicial District dating back to 1862, and earlier.
The event to unveil the initial phase of the wall occurred on Thursday, Dec. 15. The Colorado Supreme Court Law Librarian Dan Cordova spoke about the phases of the project and the work it required to get it up and running. Caren Stanley, First Judicial District Administrator, said it was a goal of hers to get this wall of honor erected. “We wanted to be sure to honor those that had such a unique place in our history.”
The history of the First Judicial District will be presented along the two walls, to the right of the elevators, featuring former and historical judges. Sketches of three earlier courthouses, drawn by Carol Perricone, wife of retired Judge Gaspar Perricone, will be featured in this display. Judges will be grouped within the historical timeline along the two walls.
Descendants and friends of former First Judicial District judges are encouraged to contact the Jefferson County Historic Commission with information, pictures, and/or questions related to this project. Please contact Dennis Dempsey at 303-271-8734 or firstname.lastname@example.org, or Bonnie Scudder at 303-349-8235 or email@example.com.
