The Fort Collins Water Works

Saturday was a tour day at the original Fort Collins Waterworks building. The building is owned by the Poudre Landmarks Foundation. They give free public tours the first Saturday of every month during the summer months.

The building and grounds are pretty cool. Currently the building is still being restored after being in disrepair for several years.
Out back are the remains of a stone wall that was used to hold back the water.

The inside is pretty cool too.
You just don't see the level of detail and craftsmanship anymore. Old buildings were built to be functional and beautiful at the same time.

There's a section of old wooden pipe outside too. Cool stuff!
