Midway Roadhouse



Midway resort was a popular place of ill fame between Morrison and Denver during the Prohibition years. Like other notorious roadhouses, Midway was periodically raided by the Jefferson County Sheriff. On July 1, 1925, Midway was finally busted for good when Sheriff Johnson, Undersheriff Hall, and several deputies raided the establishment, and after much puzzled searching discovered a large buried cache of moonshine booze on the premises waiting for the coming 4th of July. Arrested were Midway's proprietors: Fred DeNave, Fred Goeritz and Walter Ronaldson.
