This rural, historical site is registered as a State and Local Historic Landmark.
Tour guides offer insights into the architecture and construction of the buildings as well as the engineering of the turbines, pumps, and filter system.
The Water Works is on 23 acres, and one of its many fine surprises is that it has a small apple orchard with vintage apple varieties.
Another stunner is Larimer County's second-largest cottonwood tree, which stands sentry at the entrance to the property.

Take a Self-Guided Historic Walking Tour of Old Town
This map is included in the downloadable Historic Fort Collins Walking Tour guide.
Even though this year's Historic Homes Tour is now behind us, you can still take a walk through history in Old Town Fort Collins by using our free  self-guided walking tour map, which offers five different tours based in Old Town. Each tour takes 1.5 to 2 hours and is a great way to enjoy our beautiful fall weather. The guide includes a map along with photos and descriptions of each stop.

The location of Old Town Square remains the heart of the city as in 1873 when the town was established. From this location, these five self-guided tours take you to numerous historic sites in our city:

- Visit the most historic locations, including the only structure left from the 1860s military post and the childhood home of a legendary film star.

- Explore the many ghost signs that still hauntingly linger from days past.

- Travel back in time to the locations of early railroads and streetcars. And more!
