Historic Fort Snelling

A National Historic Landmark

The site will open to the public on Memorial Day Weekend 2017. Don't miss these other great programs!

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.

  • 1862 at the Fort
May 11, 2017 - 7:00pm - 9:00pm

Historian Hal Winton and veterans will discuss the critical decisions that resulted in victory at the Battle of the Bulge.

Our Youth Fife & Drum Corps is looking for a few good musicians! Students are encouraged to join the 2016 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.
