The Future of Jacoby Farm

The Farm’s History

Jacoby Farm is located on 15th Street, north of the Greeley No. 2 Canal, and is home to Windsor’s oldest building, the Halfway House. Built in 1873, the Halfway House served as a resting place for travelers between Greeley and Fort Collins.

About the Process

The Jacoby Farm property is set to be conveyed to the Town of Windsor at a future date.

Over the course of the next several months, the town will work to develop a vision for the site. Working with Vireo, a planning and design firm, the town looks to develop plans for the site with the community, including identifying amenities and improvements.

Please note, the Jacoby Farm site is currently private property and does not belong to the Town of Windsor. The town asks that individuals interested in the park master planning process be respectful of the current landowners and stay off of the private property.
