Journey back to a time before Minnesota’s statehood as you walk the rooms of the Commandant’s House at Historic Fort Snelling. Home to the fort’s constructor, Colonel Josiah Snelling and his wife, Abigail Hunt Snelling, this fine example of Georgian architecture showcases the exemplary skill and craftsmanship of the enlisted men who built it.
Peek behind the curtains into the spaces where the Snellings slept and entertained; clerks and regimental staff gathered for work; and enslaved people and servants toiled around the hearth, using tools such as a three-legged spider, crane and toaster to prepare the household’s food.
