44 Round Tower at Fort Snelling near St. Paul, Minnesota

This Round Tower was built at Fort Snelling in 1820, 38 years before Minnesota became a state. It is considered to be the state’s oldest remaining building. This frontier post was the epicenter for the future Twin Cities of Minneapolis and Saint Paul plus neighboring towns. This pioneering role has earned the fortification two prestigious designations: U.S. National Historic Landmark and U.S. National Register of Historic Parks.
