Welcome to the Newto News for March of 2024. My name is Zack Cockfield, and my team and I created Newtomedia as a way for visitors or new residents to get information about a city. Each month we bring together resources that will update you on the history, amenities, culture, future opportunities and all other things inside a city that make it unique. We also hope to be a resource for connecting you with people and businesses that can help you live a better life. If you find our efforts useful, please click on the links to get more information!

Founded in 1864 as a military outpost during the Colorado Indian Wars, Fort Collins has since evolved into a vibrant city known for its thriving arts community, outdoor recreation opportunities, and thriving craft beer scene. Named after Colonel William Collins, the fort was originally established to protect settlers from Native American attacks. After the Indian Wars ended, Fort Collins became a hub for agriculture due to its fertile land and access to water from the Cache la Poudre River. The city continued to grow with the arrival of the railroad in the late 19th century, connecting Fort Collins to larger markets and further boosting the local economy. In the 20th century, Fort Collins experienced a population boom thanks to the establishment of Colorado State University and the growth of industries like technology and manufacturing. Today, Fort Collins is a dynamic city that balances its rich history with modern amenities, making it a popular destination for residents and visitors alike.
