Fort Snelling offers a living history program with costumed guides. During our guided tour, we heard from the schoolmaster, a doctor, soldier, wash woman, blacksmith, store keeper, and Colonel Snelling's wife. They answered our questions and told us interesting stories about what it was like to live at Fort Snelling during the 1820's.
Located near the Minneapolis/St. Paul airport, Fort Snelling is a do not miss if you are in the Twin Cities and have any interest in history. The Minnesota Historical Society website has a calendar of special events to help you plan a visit.
