Grants

Fort Snelling West District Historic Building Inventory

Cover of report.

Recipient: Hennepin County

A survey of 15 historic building interiors of the West District of Fort Snelling to supplement the Historic Context Study of the Light Rail Transit Station Area.

The project will have a lasting impact as it becomes part of a larger body of information about the Fort Snelling campus. The overall report provides information on possible allowable development - including guidelines for reuse of buildings, additions, and development on sites  containing historic buildings. The historic West District building survey and inventory provided insight into the area's original use as Fort Snelling's Quartermaster's area and information on previously undocumented buildings. Continuing and new uses for West District historic buildings may permit them to remain and inform future generations about the area's history and culture.

The Minnesota Historical and Cultural Grants Program has been made possible by the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund through the vote of Minnesotans on November 4, 2008. Administered by the Minnesota Historical Society.
