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. 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.
