Historic Fort Snelling

We are currently closed for the season.

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.

The Logistics of War
Thurs, March 12 @ 7 pm

Dr. Jerry Brown presents on the importance of logistical operations during WWII.

Our Youth Fife & Drum Corps is looking for a few good musicians! Students are encouraged to join the 2015 corps. Apply today and make music history.

The fort played a significant role during and after the U.S.-Dakota War of 1862. Learn about this important time during your visit and online.
