120 years: 1913

Little Italy, just south of the train depot is a vibrant ethnic neighborhood in 1913 Grand Junction.

Amore Raso opens his grocery store at 220 S. Second St. and becomes the banker for other hardworking Italians.

Near there, the BPOE Elks Lodge 575 opens its new home at Fourth Street and Ute Avenue.

That winter, Denver receives 45 inches of snow and Georgetown get 68.  The 16th Amendment to the Constitution establishes the federal income tax.
