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.
For the 2019 – 2020 year our theme is “Eccentric People and Places of Fort Collins and Beyond.” On September 3rd, Eva Sue portrayed Lady Moon in a delightful presentation. On October 1st, Hap Hazard, our valiant president, will give a presentation on the eclectic architecture of Colorado State University. To see the entire schedule for the year, check out our Society Events page.
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.
