Learn about mining, the strikes and Denver's first policewoman. – In Short
Lafayette, Denver's suburban neighbor to the northwest, once was the site of the Rocky Mountain Fuel Company, the state's largest coal operator. It also was the site of a violent 1927 clash between miners and mine guards, when six people were killed and many others injured in the midst of a strike. Later that same year, Josephine Roche (Denver's first policewoman) inherited the mine and, in a move that shocked shareholders, invited the United Mine Workers to organize the miners.
