Which old houses are worth saving? And how far should we go to save them? Two Fort Collins’ bloggers are now starting to explore these questions: One using research and one using very big trucks.
Terrence Hoaglund, an architect and board member on the Landmarks Preservation Commission, will document Fort Collins homes from 1960s to present. He’s trying to help answer the question, “What’s worth saving?” when it comes to mid-century and later architecture.
