Wayne Sundberg to Speak at Historical Society Meeting – April 4th

Learn about the origins of the City of Fort Collins, from its founding as a military base to the platting of the streets and more at the last historical society meeting of the season. This is the last in a series entitled “Going Way Back” in which the society has explored the lives and times of early trappers, homesteaders, ranchers, and even the natives who proceeded them all.

Tuesday night’s talk will enter into the beginning of the small agricultural town that was built along the Poudre river after the land was turned over by the United States military.

Fort Collins Historical Society meetings are free and open to the public. The talk will begin at 7pm at the Masonic Temple, 225 W. Oak Street (just across from the county building). Park behind the Masonic Temple, on the street, or in the county parking lot. Enter the building through the door at street level near Howes.

Time Travelers Ball a Great Success!

Thanks to everyone who came to the third Time Travelers Ball hosted by the Poudre Landmarks Society. Though the official numbers aren’t yet in, it looks like the Foundation made about $5,000 on this Spring fundraiser.

And the costumes just keep getting better and better each year. There was a marvelous array of outfits with Victorian and Steampunk both being well represented. This year we also had several hippies, a few flappers, and, of all things, a bunny. To see more photos, hop on over to the Mountain Events Facebook album.
