Montezuma Fuller, born November 13, 1858 in King’s County, Nova Scotia, was an American architect known in Fort Collins, CO. in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries for his work, much of which remains intact and in use, with many listed on the United States National Register of Historic Places, including:
• The Peter Anderson House, at 300 South Howes Street in Fort Collins, CO.
• The First United Presbyterian Church, at 400 East 4th Street in Loveland, CO.
• The Montezuma-Fuller House, at 226 West Magnolia Street in Fort Collins, CO.
• The Kissock Block Building, located at 115-121 East Mountain Avenue in Fort Collins, CO.
• The McHugh-Andrews House, at 202 Remington Street in Fort Collins, CO.

Additional projects include structures throughout Larimer County, CO.:

• Remodeling of a barn into a lab and science classroom on the campus of the Fort Collins Colorado Agricultural College (Now known as Colorado State University). (The project took place in 1883, and was eventually demolished.)
Fuller acquired much of his knowledge and experience by working for local contractors, starting in 1880. From this he became known as a carpenter and builder, and developed a sound reputation as an architect, despite the lack of formal training in the field.
Montezuma Fuller died in 1925 from stomach cancer.
