Camp Collins - Colorado

In the Middle of Old Town Ft Collins sits a really cool Museum.

And in it - is some of the buildings of the people who settled Ft Collins - and it is cool!


Here is the story - click on it to make it bigger

And then there were other houses in the little village!



Look closely at the photo above
See anything more 21st centruy in there?
I was really tempted to move it.... but I didn't know if I would get in trouble




The window on this little house intrigued me
I really really really wanted to go in
but the doors are locked!!



and in color
Check out that curtain!!


I had too much fun with this one
trying to make it look vintage

if you ever get to Ft Collins CO
you might enjoy this little village

and there is a museum next to it that has different shows 
The day we went there was a quilt show hanging of modern quilts
and a local photographer

I lived in Fort Collins for 6 years in the 1950-1960s, and don't remember ever seeing this compound. Could it be a more recent restoration? I'll have to check it out the next time we are in the area!! Thanks for sharing. Sally

That looks really neat! And that's usually my problem as well..locked when I'm there. Grrr

Love the black and white photos. I lived in one similar, but not nearly as nice for 2-1/2 years. An interesting experience living without running water and very little heat. Sure glad I had quilts.

So interesting about the woman who lived there! Loved the photos, especially the B&W ones and the one with the faded window curtain and cup!

What a charming well built cabin. I'll definitely try to visit it on my next trip up to Fort Collins

I like places like this. If you want to see early pioneer cabins you need to visit Cade's Cove in Great Smoky Mtn National Park.
