Historic Fort Snelling Revitalization

The Minnesota Historical Society (MNHS) hired MOCA Services as its Owner’s Representative for the Historic Fort Snelling Revitalization project. MNHS set out to develop the area into a compelling national destination that presents not only the military history but that of the native people. Therefore, this project required expertise in community engagement, landscape interpretive elements, and the management of bond funds combined with donor funds.

Value Added

MOCA Services helped the Minnesota Historical Society successfully navigate a highly visible, politicized project by enforcing standards and guidelines for all team members. MOCA Services led an on-boarding process for all workers that included historical and cultural context along with the typical safety requirements. Additionally, MOCA Services led the project team through a difficult redesign process as a result of reduced funding by identifying efficiencies in the redesign process.

“Historic Fort Snelling has been a site of diplomacy and conflict; pride and tragedy; service and sacrifice. Today, the site reveals more of this remarkable history with spaces for visitors to study, reflect, connect and learn.”

Kent Whitworth, MNHS Director and CEO
