A can’t miss historic structure in the heart of Old Town is the Avery House, which was built in 1879 by Franklin Avery who is responsible for the design of our wide streets around Fort Collins and he also was the founder of our local First National Bank and instrumental in developing many of our early water projects that enable agriculture to flourish in Northern Colorado. This house is now listed in the National Register of Historic Places and is available to tour on Saturdays and Sundays from 1-4 pm.

And, don’t forget about 1883 Water Works, which is Fort Collins’ first ever public works project. This property is located at the foothills immediately west of Fort Collins where the historic Overland Trail runs right through the middle of the 23-plus acre site.

The history of farming sugar beets, our land grant university, and our 500-year flood illustrate our city’s more recent history. Not to overlook the story of prehistoric man, including the globally significant find of the Lindenmeier site and many Folsom tradition fossils which revolutionized the theories of man during the Ice Age.
