There is no better way to get to know some of our favorite places then a behind the scenes tour. This one promises to be one of the best. My contact at Fort Snelling alerted me to this program, knowing it would be perfect for us. My response was sign us up. Many of us have been to Fort Snelling before, but what we've seen only scratches the surface of what's been discovered below the grounds we've walked on., The Fort has been an archaeological dig site for years, we will get to see the results of their work, most of which will never be seen by the public. This will be an experience to remember. YOUR ADVANCE PAYMENT WILL GET YOU ACCESS TO THE FORT PRIOR TO OUR TOUR. IF YOU WISH TO COME EARLY AND EXPLORE THE FORT. I will be providing the tour office with a list of names of those who have paid, Our tour is scheduled to start at 1:00, PLEASE PLAN TO MEET IN THE VISITORS CENTER NO LATER THEN 12:45.
Have you ever lost something? Imagine that someone hundreds of years in the future found it. What story do you think this item would tell about who you were and the way you lived? Join us for Beneath the Surface and you’ll see how archaeologists and historians do just that – piece together clues from the past to understand the puzzle of life hundreds of years ago. During this special behind-the-scenes program you’ll tour the historic fort to learn about one of the largest excavations of a military post in North America. You'll tour both restored and reconstructed buildings, and learn about how the clues uncovered by archaeologists helped us learn about the lives of the people who called the fort home. You'll also visit the archaeology lab and handle some of the original treasures unearthed at Fort Snelling. Together with others on the tour, you'll work to identify objects and try to understand the stories they tell. By the end, you'll see how understanding the past helps us better understand ourselves today and in the future. Length: 2.5 hours
I also want to give you a heads up on another popular event. We had a great time at last Fall's CSI History Mystery. Just as soon as I get the details on when tickets can be purchased I will get the announcement posted. We will be going on the adult only Friday nights in October.
