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.
Join us at the Avery House for docent-led tours to learn about this historic home and the family who lived in it. In 1879, Franklin Avery and his wife Sara built a family home on the corner of Mountain Avenue and Meldrum Street and raised their children, Edgar, Ethel, and Louise, there.
See the Avery House decorated in Victorian holiday style on the first weekend in December: Saturday & Sunday Dec. 2-3 from 11 am to 4 pm. Live music and special appearance from Grandfather Christmas. Free & open to the public.
