While the Gettin’s Good

LFC’s focus on the not-too-distant past hits a mark I think many places miss in their history-gathering efforts.

I like that.

To me, history happened yesterday and this morning. If we’re not careful to pay attention to the details of the present, we’ll lose important insight into the people and events […]

Fort Collins Murals

One of the things I enjoy about urban life, particularly here in Fort Collins, but everywhere, is the urban art. For this post, I am focusing on existing murals painted on the sides of buildings. These three are current ones that I am aware of, but there may be more. These are akin to the […]

Welcome to the New Lost Fort Collins

Welcome to the new home of Lost Fort Collins. I have worked hard to get this new blog up and running as fast as I could. I hope you will find it just as informative as the old blog. I will be making a few additions to the blog over time, including replacing the rotating […]

Lost Fort Collins to get a Facelift

Over the next few days, I am going to be giving Lost Fort Collins a facelift. There isn’t anything really wrong with the current look, but I am also moving the blog to a self hosted site, where I can place more controls on content and such. In the process of doing this, there is […]

Also up, was a proclamation celebrating the 25th anniversary of Old Town Square. Speaking of, there is […]

Public Service Building

Midway through demolition

There is a significant change going on to the old Public Service Building on North Meldrum. Originally built as the Public Service Company building in 1972 (undoubtedly replacing some nice looking homes), most recently this building house a series of engineering companies. In 1993, RBD, a local engineering company purchased and […]

Lost Fort Collins – The Future

After taking some time to think about things, talking to several people, and with the encouragement of readers, I have decided to continue the Lost Fort Collins blog. It is unfortunate what has happened, but that ship has now sailed. Over time, we will try to recreate as much of the content as possible, and […]

Lost Fort Collins is Diminished

Unfortunately, Cat has decided to remove all of her posts and information from the blog that she has put in over the years. Recently there has been several instances of people taking photos and other information from this blog, always without permission. Cat got fed up with this, and decided to remove all of her […]
