AAA Editor Notes
Fort Belmont is just s. of I-90 exit 73 via US 71, then .4 mi. w. on Belmont Ln. (which becomes a gravel road). Situated amid rolling prairie country, the buildings at Fort Belmont re-create a semblance of what 19th-century southwestern Minnesota life was like. The structures include a sod house, the 1902 Delafield Lutheran Church, the 1873 Lysgard farmhouse and summer kitchen, the fort stockade, and a log cabin, blacksmith shop, grist mill and lookout tower. The museum on the premises exhibits vintage automobiles, a Conestoga wagon, a tepee, a dog sled, a watchtower, canoes and a collection of pioneer artifacts.

Guided tours are available. Picnicking is permitted.
