The National Trust named the Upper Post to its America’s 11 Most Endangered Historic Places in 2006 to focus attention on the dozens of rapidly deteriorating historic buildings on this National Historic Landmark site. The Trust also provided grant funds to restore the iconic clock on the Administration Building. (National Trust Website)
With its previous experience helping to transform former military installations and its national reputation as a leader of the preservation movement, the National Trust can work with local partners to create a unified vision for a sustainable reuse of this beloved historic landmark and a model for an empowered governing entity. The Trust can also work with the Native American community and landowners to honor and acknowledge the tribal history throughout the greater Ft. Snelling area.
