To ensure COVID safety measures are met, the Poudre Landmarks Foundation’s Historic Homes Tour will be replaced with “Street Stories,” a self-guided tour of the exteriors of historic locations in and around Old Town Fort Collins. This year’s tour showcases many styles of Old Town Fort Collins’ historic buildings built between 1879 and 1949: Victorian, Gothic Revival, Neoclassical, Richardsonian Romanesque, Art Moderne, Art Deco, Italianate, Spanish Revival and much more. The Edwards House Inn and the city-owned 1879 Avery House and 1883 Water Works are also part of the tour. There’s even a Quonset Hut and a cemetery. Guests visit the historic locations at their own pace and in any order. The free, official booklet guides attendees through each location, pointing out architectural features, historical highlights, and the evolution of Fort Collins. Guests are encouraged to participate in the scavenger hunt to win prizes including a hosted party at the Avery House. This is a free, non-ticketed event and can be accessed through early 2021.
