The cornerstone was laid for the Benevolent and Protective Order of the Elks, No. 507, in 1925 at Ninth Street and East Second Avenue. Durango Elks Lodge still uses the same building today, at 901 East Second Ave.

50 years ago: Durango police investigated a break-in at Sam Gilchrist Appliances on Main Avenue and a series of other thefts from cars that were reported throughout the week.

25 years ago: La Plata County Sheriff’s Office deputies cited a 22-year-old man for “attaching himself to a motor vehicle while riding his bike in the 1400 block of County Road 240” and another man, whose age was unavailable, for allowing the cyclist to “latch onto his vehicle.”
