Built on the bluffs above the Mississippi and Minnesota rivers, it was accessible only by water or forest trail, making iy truly remote.

Costumed guides lead tours, demonstrate crafts and practice military drills complete with the firing of muskets and cannons.
Shoulder a musket, but remember that his store is blacksmith’s shop. Barter with the sutler, but remember that his store is the only one for miles around!
Tell your complaints to the doctor- if you dare. His remedies are sometimes less than appealing! Take in a historical skit, sing along with soldiers and watch exciting military drills.
Hear fascinating speakers at monthly WWII Roundtables.
Location:
Five minutes east of Twin Cities International Airport.
