Historic Fort Snelling

Built in the early 1820s, Historic Fort Snelling is a great place to learn about military history from before the Civil War through World War II, fur trade history, slavery in Minnesota, the U.S.-Dakota War of 1862 and much more. Its location – at the junction of the Minnesota and Mississippi Rivers – has been significant for centuries to many American Indian communities.

Historic Fort Snelling is a National Historic Landmark.
