Letterpress & Publick House Update #8

Posted on September 9th, by Todd Simmons in Uncategorized. No Comments

Dear World,

We’d like you to know that just because we’ve been quiet, even silent, doesn’t mean that we haven’t been making lots of noise. Please take us at our word. We are loud these days.


We are starting to sweep up areas for the next-to-last time before opening, so stay tuned, and thanks for listening.

Letterpress & Publick House Update #7

Posted on July 2nd, by Todd Simmons in Blog, Front Page. No Comments

Our momentum allows little time for updates these days, we’re pushing hard to get open before summer abandons us. In the next few weeks we’ll be out-of-doors, working on our landscaping. But for now, we’re still inside, working on the following:


Once we open, what will you do at our Letterpress & Publick House?

Letterpress & Publick House Update #6

Posted on May 20th, by Todd Simmons in Blog. No Comments

Last time we looked up, it was March. We’ve been putting up wood and metal siding with such fierce determination, we missed April and most of May. Well, here’s what we have to show for it:

And now this:

Work has thankfully moved inside, where we’ve been busy with interior finishes such as the ceiling in the Event Hall:

And Trevor Ryan with Wry Goat Studio has been working on our bar. This is his workshop in the midst of creation:

And pieces of the bar panels:

We can’t wait to show you the finished product. We’ll have more to share next week, plus details on when we plan to open up!

We need your help!

Posted on November 5th, by Todd Simmons in Blog. No Comments

Dear Fans of the Wolverine Farm:

Construction on our Letterpress & Publick House is going well–last week I stood on our newly constructed second story floor and looked out over Fort Collins. It’s extremely satisfying to see all the planning and theorizing take place in a tangible form.

We’re currently raising money for the landscaping and outdoor space at the Publick House, and could use your help. Please visit our bookstore and look at the different sponsorship levels–everything from individual yucca plants, outdoor tables, our stone privacy wall, and the artistic metal fence at the front of the property. Put your name on a piece of history, and support Fort Collins’ art and culture!

If you have any questions or would like more information, please feel free to call or email me directly. Thanks again for your continued support!
