  • Sights & Attractions


Discover an 1820s military outpost once at the edge of a small settlement, but now at the center of the Twin Cities' metro area. This restored stone fortress opens its gates to welcome you to frontier life. Imagine the year is 1827 and, as costumed guides greet you, that you've just arrived via steamboat up the Mississippi River.
