Terror Tours! History haunts Fort Collins

by Toby Swaford, K-12 Education Coordinator

Take a journey to the dark side of local legend and lore. What tales of terror, betrayal, and murder fill the streets of Old Town, and what mysteries lay beneath? Where was the town’s first cemetery? More intriguingly, what happened to its former occupants, and what building stands there today? Find the answers to these questions, and more, on the 9th Annual Terror Tours. You’ll never look at local history the same way again.

Here are the particulars:

Terror Tours depart from the Fort Collins Museum & Discovery Science Center (200 Mathews St., Fort Collins) beginning at 7:30 pm on Friday, October 23 and Friday, October 30. Tours leave every 30 minutes and the last tour leaves at 10 PM. Tickets cost $3 per person. Buy your tickets ahead of time at the Museum — they’re going fast! Tickets are good only for the date and tour time listed on them. Tours are limited to 20 individuals, and are available on a first come, first served basis. No refunds available. For more information contact the Museum at 221-6738.

Dress in costume and join us for a hauntingly good time! Recommended for ages 16 and up due to content.
