Get to know Larimer County


Historic Loveland: Inside & Out

When: 10 am. November 17, 2018. Please show up 10 minutes early so we can begin the tour on time.

Where: We will meet up in front of the historic First National Bank, now Desk Chair Workspace, 201 E 4th St – at the corner of 4th and Cleveland.

Join Historic Larimer County on Saturday, November 17th for a walking tour of three historic downtown buildings. Learn about the architecture, history, and preservation of the Rialto Theater, First National Bank, and the Lovelander Hotel, all located within Loveland’s Downtown Historic District. Please dress warmly as we’ll be spending time outside of the buildings talking about the architecture before touring inside. Stick around afterwards, if you’d like, to enjoy lunch in Loveland’s downtown historic district.

This tour is free for Historic Larimer County members and only $5 for non-members.. Not a member yet? Become one today!

Holy Places for the Holidays

When: Time and date TBA. December 2018

Where: Downtown Fort Collins.

In what we hope will become the first in a series, Historic Larimer County will be covering the history, architecture, and preservation of historic churches, synagogues, mosques and other religious buildings throughout the county. Since that can’t all be done in one tour, we’ll be selecting a small group of buildings from a different part of the county each year, starting with four churches in downtown Fort Collins this year.

We’re still working out the details, so stay tuned for more information.

Preservation Mixer

When: 4 pm on January 12th (with the 19th as our back-up date in case of inclement weather)

Where: The Bellvue Grange, 2929 North County Road 23 in Bellvue.

Join us on January 12th for food, folly, and fun! Test your knowledge with a Preservation Trivia game. Enjoy a slideshow of photos from tours that Historic Larimer County has held over the past year. And spend some time catching up with other HLC members who love history and the places that embody it just as much as you do!

Stay tuned for more details!
