Fort Snelling National Cemetery – Minneapolis, MN

Named a “Cemetery of Distinction” by the Veteran’s Affairs National Cemetery Administration, this massive project required Bentz Thompson Rietow to masterplan, design, and oversee the construction and/or remodeling of five buildings, three committal shelters, and 128 columbaria units. Completed in 2008, work focused on re-establishing the local vernacular of the cemetery as a national shrine, once expressed through its historic landscaping and building structures.
