Old Fort Collins High School

-A A +A
1924, William N. Bowman. 1400 S. Remington St.

This school exhibits an irregular plan with parapeted wings on both sides of a center gable, a three-story columned portico, and a prominent central cupola. Red brick with tan stone quoins covers the three-and-one-half stories. Numerous rear additions do not detract from the front facade. The students and athletic teams are called Lambkins, commemorating the days when Fort Collins was a major lamb feeding center.
