The city of Fort Collins, Colorado is situated along the Cache La Poudre River. The city is classed a Home Rule Municipality. Situated along the Colorado Front Range, Fort Collins serves as the county seat and biggest city of Larimer County. The 2010 census listed the populations as approximately 143,900 making it the 4th most densely inhabited city within Colorado state.

Initially, the city started out as an army post like its name suggests. In the beginning it was called "Camp Collins," in honor of the commander of Ohio Cavalry troops who were headquartered at Fort Laramie under Lt. Col. William O. Collins. During the year 1864, a devastating flood almost destroyed the first army post. The existing site of the city of Fort Collins was picked to be the site of the new military operation. The new post was named Fort Collins. In 1867, the fort was decommissioned but a new town still emerged. During 1873, the new town of Fort Collins was officially incorporated.

Six years after that, another important milestone was achieved with the opening of the Colorado Agricultural College. This would eventually become Colorado State University.
