Historic Fort Snelling Tour
During this 90-minute program, costumed guides engage students with interactive activities, demonstrations and conversation about different aspects of life during the early 1800s. The tour includes the story of Dred and Harriet Scott, an enslaved couple who lived at the fort and later sued for their freedom. Students are also introduced to the complex relations between American Indian nations and the U.S. government. Allow extra time to watch a short film in the visitor center, to visit the History Under the Floorboards archaeology exhibit and to climb the Round Tower.
