Meetings Canceled Due to COVID-19
Given that most of our members are in the at-risk demographic, we have decided to forego hosting talks until we feel that we can safely gather together again.
The Fort Collins Historical Society promotes the history of Fort Collins and Northern Colorado through a yearly speaker series. All talks are free and open to the public.
Unfortunately our 2019 – 2020 year was cut short due to the COVID-19 situation. Our theme had been “Eccentric People and Places of Fort Collins and Beyond.” If you’re interested in seeing what those talks were, you can check out our Society Events page. We have canceled our Fall 2020 talks and will re-evaluate in December whether we’ll be hosting talks in the spring or not. Watch for emails from Hap for more information!
Presentations are held in the historic Masonic Temple located at 225 W. Oak Street in downtown Fort Collins. Meetings start at 7pm and generally last until about 8:30.
All presentations are free and open to the public, though membership is encouraged. The $10 annual membership fee helps to offset the costs of room rental, occasional snacks, and other small expenses.
The Historical Society also supports the efforts of other local organizations that seek to preserve the history of our community for the social, cultural, and economic benefit of us all.
The Fort Collins Historical Society was mentioned in the Coloradoan! April 3rd was the Society’s annual awards event and Erin Udell, a recipient of the President’s Award, was on hand and included a write-up in the paper the next day.
