First Three Open Houses on MNHS' Plans for Historic Fort Snelling Set

Public invited to learn and give feedback about the 'Many Stories: New Vision' initiative

The first three opportunities for the public to participate in open houses to learn and give feedback about the Minneota Historical Society's plans to revitalize Historic Fort Snelling through upgraded facilities and greatly expanded interpretation of the site's 8,000 years of human history are scheduled for three locations in Minneapolis and St. Paul in late October and early November.

Participants may arrive at any time during the open house to view initial concepts and renderings, speak with project planners and provide feedback. There is no formal presentation. Refreshments will be provided. Additional meetings will be held; dates and locations, TBD.
