Early Car Dealers

Ghent Motors

Captain Bevo and myself have been wondering about the history of this building. Captain believes it was originally Ghent Motors, with the showroom being on the corner (where City Drug is now), with this side being the mechanics shop. However, the recently revealed ghost sign does not really say that. Then again neither […]

Northern Hotel

Northern Hotel Sign in 2011

Commercial Hotel 1893

The Northern Hotel has been one of the iconic buildings in Fort Collins since its construction in 1873. When it was built though, it looked much different than it does today, originally it was built as the Agricultural Hotel with what I believe to have been three floors. In the 1880’s […]

Old Town Alleyways

Artist Image of Firehouse Alley

Alleys are like the ugly stepsister, all cities have them, and most choose to ignore them, particularly in downtown areas. They are usually nasty, with garbage dumpsters that stink, utility boxes and power lines, and just plain dark and dingy. Not a place you would choose to hang out […]

Rumor has it… a well-known photo mural of downtown Fort Collins shows the first electric car

The walls of Lucky Joe’s are filled with memorabilia and historic photos that fill in some of the gaps between 1904 and today. Hard to believe it has only been 25 years since Old Town Square was created. Photo by/Jamie Folsom.

Why yes, it does.

I don’t know how many of you have […]

Then and Now: Meldrum and Oak

NW Corner Meldrum and Oak circa early 1990's

Last year I came across this photograph while at Ulrich’s Blueprint. This is a photograph of the Northwest corner of Meldrum and Oak taken sometime in the 1920-30’s. This photo showcased some beautiful homes. Sometime in the 1960’s to 1970’s these homes were torn down in […]

Fort Collins Place: 100 West Oak Street in Old Town

Terence’s Note: This post was originally on FortCollinsNouns

A few months back I came across the Scouting New York blog and ever since it has been one of my favorite reads. Always full of places and things that most people overlook in and around New York City. Because of that blog I’ve begun to take […]
