Camp Collins was constructed in the mid-1800’s as a stop-over for travelers and for the postal service using the Overland Trail. Fort Collins was built as the replacement in 1864. The town of Fort Collins was platted in 1867. Fort Collins is the county seat for Larimer County and the fourth most populous city in Colorado.
