  • This cemetery is very clean and well taken care of. I know a couple of people that are buried here, and every time I come here you can tell that they work hard at keeping this place looking nice and clean. The grounds are taken care of very well, and you can always read the stones without any problem as well.
  • Several of my family are buried at Ft Snelling, it is a somber place for me to walk the grounds of their final resting place. Ft Snelling is well cared for! It is an honor to walk the grounds there and when you realize the sacrifice that was made for God and country one must conclude these grounds hold the stories of people like us who loved and dreamed. And for some though the commitment was for a time they gave all, for all!
