Historic Fort Snelling Tour

During their 90-minute tour of the site, students will learn the story of Bdote and Fort Snelling through hands-on activities, demonstrations, and conversations about the long history of the area. 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 the Dakota, Ojibwe, and U.S. government. Allow extra time to watch a short film in the visitor center and to climb the Round Tower.
