Fort Snelling Upper Post Preservation Planning

St Paul, MN
As part of the ongoing revitalization of Historic Fort Snelling Upper Post, the Minnesota Historical Society sought to update the historic context for the Fort and the VA Hospital System associated with the fort.
Our historians prepared a Research Design, then identified broad themes including important events and persons, buildings, and cultural values. Historians then updated the Fort Snelling State Historic Site context to address topics pertaining to the development and operation of this national landmark.
This study will inform work associated with the ongoing revitalization of Historic Fort Snelling, and rehabilitation of three buildings for a new visitor center.
