Gary,

Thanks for bringing this oversight to my attention. I added the fort after we visited there in 2010 and thought it was worthy of posting here, but was not aware it was on the National Register. I've corrected that so the info now appears on the site.

Hi,

Fort Snelling is registerd at the NRHP since 1966. Why is there no information about that here ?

Regards
