Fort Collins 35th Annual Historic Homes Tour

September 14, 2019
Fort Collins 35th Annual Historic Homes Tour
Poudre Landmarks Foundation’s annual Historic Homes Tour is on Saturday, September 14, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. This late-summer event opens six private residences, an historic inn, and two historic city-owned properties to tour guests. Each private house has been exquisitely maintained by their owners to match the era and architecture of the home, with upgrades to match today’s lifestyle.

This year’s tour showcases many styles of Old Town Fort Collins historic homes built between 1879 and 1961: Victorian, Italianate, Cottage, American Foursquare, Masonry Ranch, and Minimal Traditional. The Edwards House Inn and the city-owned 1879 Avery House and 1883 Water Works are also part of the tour. The Avery House, Edwards House, and 2 of the private tour homes are accessible from the Mountain Avenue trolley. Guests visit the homes and travel between tour properties at their own pace and in any order. Knowledgeable docents guide attendees through each location, pointing out architectural features, historical highlights, and details about how each home has been preserved and upgraded over the years.

Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 on tour day, with tickets available for purchase at several locations on tour day. Advance tickets are available online now at poudrelandmarks.org and will be available at the following local outlets beginning August 14: 

• Ace Hardware of Fort Collins, 1001 E. Harmony Rd.
• Downtown Ace Hardware, 215 S. College Ave. 
• Fort Collins Nursery, 2121 E. Mulberry St. 
• Perennial Gardener/Sense of Place, 154 N. College Ave. 

Tour attendees may ride the Municipal Railway Trolley (fortcollinstrolley.org) free on the day of the tour.     

A pre-tour Historic Homes Tour Architectural Panel Discussion is separately ticketed and will be held before the tour on September 10, 7:00-8:30 p.m. at the Edwards House Montezuma Room, 107 N. Meldrum Street, in Fort Collins. Speakers include local historians Barbara Fleming, Robin Stitzel and others. Each home on the tour will be discussed, as well as a discussion of Fort Collins history, and general architectural styles & terms. Tickets are $10 and available for purchase online at poudrelandmarks.org or at the door.

Proceeds from the events support the nonprofit Poudre Landmarks Foundation’s mission to preserve, restore, protect, and interpret the architectural and cultural heritage of the Fort Collins area.
