Historic Fort Snelling Buildings Might Get a Face Lift

For those of you who read my blog, you know I focus on more than just historic homes. I like to feature churches and buildings,too, and anything with historic significance. Today I read that the Upper Post buildings at Fort Snelling could be getting funds to fix a few buildings sorely in need of repair.

“On Tuesday, the Hennepin County board accepted $500,000 in state grant money to provide emergency stabilization for two buildings on the Upper Post. Then the board approved seeking $6.75 million in federal stimulus money to restore the Post Headquarters building and the officers’ quarters building.”

If this goes through, it will be a great addition to the fort. As some of you know, the Upper Post was declared one of the most endangered sites in the US three years ago. If you want to learn more about Fort Snelling and the Upper Post, please visit the following sites:
