Acity vulnerable to floods, Fort Collins owes its existence to one. In June 1864, a 20-foot wall of water rushed out of Poudre Canyon and swept away Camp Collins, situated at what became LaPorte. The camp, named after a commander at Fort Laramie, was moved to higher ground and became Fort Collins. The military reservation was abandoned in 1866, but it was 1872 before the land was opened to setdement. Fort Collins was incorporated in 1873. Always an agricultural area, the city's first irrigation ditch was dug in 1860 and the sugar beet later became the principal crop. The Colorado Agricultural College opened in 1879, evolving into Colorado State University, known for its agricultural programs and veterinary school. Seven major floods have occurred since 1864, the most recent being the Spring Creek Flood of 1997, which resulted in five deaths and hundreds of millions of dollars in property damage.
