This is the Avery House. Located on Mountain Ave. this house symbolizes how far our county has come. Most elementary school classes visit this Fort Collins landmark to trace back our towns history. Built in 1874 for $3,000, you are taken world’s back to a time many of us have only read about in books when you step through the front door. On holiday’s such as the 4th of July and Christmas, decorations are placed to add character to the already historic house. In many ways this house is a test of time, built by a family who only thought of Fort Collins as a town, and now global companies have headquarters just a couple blocks away.This house proves that we all started somewhere, and even though we are different in many ways, and the now city of Fort Collins is growing and gaining more recognition as a top place to live, being in Fort Collins makes us family, we have historic and modern, everyone has their own niche and Larimer County is the perfect place to find yours!
