The City of Anoka considered itself the Halloween capitol of the World. They were the first city to organize a citywide celebration. It’s a great time to check out their haunted houses. But in this perfect fall weather, it’s also a great chance to check out the homes for sale. (We are featuring homes in Anoka County on the web site this month.)
Anoka is just north of both Hennepin and Ramsey Counties. It lies on both sides of the Rum River, which enters the county approximately 20 miles north of the City of Anoka. In fact, the name Anoka originates from the Indian language, meaning “on both sides.”
