Fort Collins, Colorado
As the name implies, Fort Collins was once an army garrison. After the American Indian conflicts of the 1860s had ended, the army abandoned the post. Fort Collins then became a town initially economically aided by the Overland Trail, as well as local farms and ranches. Today it is an industrial, technological and education center (University of Colorado). As usual, John had done his research on the town and determined that the area we should check out was the historic Fort Collins.
