Dedicated to the history and preservation of Fort Snelling

Hopefully you've stumbled across this page because you feel, as we do, that the buildings of Fort Snelling are worth preserving. Maybe you've driven by and seen the structures on the bluff above Highway 5 falling over from their own weight. Maybe you're curious about Fort Snelling or the history of Minnesota and want to learn more. Either way, we hope that you'll find this site a useful resource.

Now looking for a few good volunteers! We need you!
