Why local history matters to our volunteers


Bill - chairman, Friends of the Water Works

Bill is a longtime volunteer with Poudre Landmarks Foundation. You will find him giving tours through the 1883 Water Works facility whenever it is open. He believes local history matters because "it reminds us of how our city began."


Phil - Volunteer & Friend of the 1883 Water Works

Phil is another dedicated volunteer with Poudre Landmarks at the 1883 Water Works. He says "history is important to me because it is interesting to know where we came from and how things developed!"
