My apologies to our readers. I updated the blogging platform and theme last night, and somehow lost the image file that is behind the posts. This made the site next to impossible to read. A loyal reader pointed this out to me today, and I was able to correct the problem. Again, my apologies.
Many of you may know Daryle Dickens. He is a local writer, and recently produced the FortCollinsNoun blog. He has decided to shut that blog down, but has graciously offered the content of his blog to Lost Fort Collins. Over time, I will release that content as new posts. He does have some good [...]
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.

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 [...]
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.

Don’t worry, I am still around. Work and life has gotten in the way recently. Oh yeah, and re-plumbing a 1904 farmhouse. I swear, they installed the plumbing, and built the house around it. Only way I can explain steel pipe connections embedded in a stud. I am working on some new material though.
I know you have all been waiting, and it is finally here. As of today, I am officially taking over duties at Lost Fort Collins. I am quite humbled by this prospect, and very excited about it as well. Cat and I have been following each others blogs for a couple of years, but [...]
I always meant to write a series of posts about the women who made this town what it is. This was no ladies club dressing up for Victorian tea parties.
