opening doors to the past
Poudre Landmarks Foundation's annual Historic Homes Tour in Fort Collins has been held on the second Saturday of September each year since 1985. Tour guests visit historic homes and businesses located in downtown Fort Collins. Tickets go on sale about a month before the event and are available online at poudrelandmarks.org and at several local businesses. Proceeds from ticket sales go toward the nonprofit Poudre Landmarks Foundation's mission to preserve, restore, protect, and interpret the architectural and cultural heritage of the Fort Collins area.
The mission of the Poudre Landmarks Foundation is to preserve, restore, protect, and interpret the architectural and cultural heritage of the Fort Collins area. PLF manages two historic properties: The 1879 Avery House and the 1883 Water Works.
