Cimarron Colfax County Newspaper

The first newspaper at Cimarron, then the County seat of Colfax County, was printed in 1872 or 1873 by Mr. Dawson, the enterprise being owned by the Maxwell Land Grant Company. Coogler succeeded Mr. Dawson as editor, and Thomas Henderson and "Colonel" Henry Whigham ran it later. When the County seat of Colfax was removed to Springer, the paper ceased publication.
