As the Minnesota Historical Society continues its effort to revitalize Historic Fort Snelling, the interpretation of the site’s history is changing in order to connect with an increasingly diverse Minnesota and America.

Come learn from Peter DeCarlo, local history author and MHS employee, how community engagement, sharing authority, pursuing “truth,” and historical methodology are influencing the new interpretation of the site.

Copies of his book, Fort Snelling at Bdote will be for sale.
