    Cool and Fun Places to see in the Twin Cities
    Historic Fort Snelling, Minnesota



     



    Fort Snelling


    Built on a commanding bluff above the Mississippi  and Minnesota Rivers, Fort Snelling was once the last United States outpost in the 
    "Northern Wilderness"
    and the hub of frontier commerce and administration on the upper Mississippi. 

    Now the restored fort opens it's gates to welcome you to 19th century frontier life. Talk with soldiers who grumble about farm chores. Meet a Dakota trader's wife. Visit the blacksmith at his forge, the carpenter in his shop, or the surgeon at the post Hospital. Servants, cooks, officers, laundress and the storekeeper are eager to share their stories with you.

    Take part in the Fort's everyday life. Shoulder a musket, mend clothes, scrape a hide or sing along with the soldiers' songs. Take tea with Mrs. Snelling or sample the soldiers' bread ration. Shop for supplies at the Sutler's store, where only the prices are modern. At Historic Fort Snelling, visitors are always welcome and the modern world is checked at the gate.

    Front Entrance

    The original barracks built on this site in 
    1823 was home to enlisted men
