Dear Fort Collins Historical Society member,
The original 1882-1883 Fort Collins Water Works has stood on North Overland Trail Road for over 125 years. Local historians are trying to find out moreinformation about the building and the people who once lived and worked there.
If you have any memories of it, I ask that you share them with me. Maybe you went there as a kid for a picnic or to just explore. Did you ever know anyone who lived at the Superintendent’s House or worked there? Do you remember seeing a water wheel at the building?
Also, if you are going through your family photo albums and happen to run across a photo with the water works buildings in the background, I would love to get a copy. I can scan any photo and return to you undamaged.
