Open House Season Starts at the 1883 Water Works
Subject: Open-House Season at 1883 Water Works
Date: 2nd Sat., May–Oct., 10:00–3:00
Location:
Fort Collins Water Works
2005 N. Overland Trail
Fort Collins, CO 80521

Spring is just around the corner in Fort Collins, and along with it comes the start of open-house season at the historic Water Works site on Overland Trail. Beginning May 13, the 1883 Fort Collins Water Works holds free monthly open houses on the second Saturday of each month, through October, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

2017 Tour Dates:
May 13
June 10
July 8
August 12
September 16
October 14

Built in 1882–1883, Fort Collins’ first public works project includes 23 acres, four buildings, and two historic irrigation ditches. This fascinating historical site is being transformed into an interpretive center for visitors to learn about the history of water development and use in Fort Collins. Tour guides offer insights into the architecture and construction of the buildings as well as the engineering of the turbines, pumps, and filter system.

A nearly century-old orchard on the site features several early varieties of apple trees. In addition, one of Larimer County’s largest cottonwood trees is located at the Water Works. During tour season, the Water Works makes a great scenic stop for bicyclists enjoying the community’s many bike trails.
