Fort Snelling Upper Post
Fort Snelling Upper Post is located entirely within unincorporated Hennepin County. The county has made improvements to the site with grant funding and is currently leading a task force to consolidate land titles and development rights from the myriad of federal, state and local agencies involved and to develop a master plan for redevelopment of the area.
The task force was convened by the National Trust for Historic Preservation and is chaired by Hennepin County Commissioner Peter McLaughlin. The group is looking at models used at other abandoned military installations.
In 2013, Hennepin County released a Request for Proposal on behalf of the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources seeking adaptive reuse of the historic upper post buildings.
