  • Ghost Tours run all summer!

    Anoka County Historical Society’s Ghosts of Anoka Walking Tours run throughout the summer. Join us for history and mystery at 7:30pm, on select Thursdays and Saturdays, May-August, and venture through downtown Anoka with a costumed tour guide.

    Enjoy an evening walk around the city and beat the fall crowds by signing up for a summer tour to hear the history and unexplained stories of homes and businesses in this historic city.

    Get more information or buy tickets online! Tickets can also be purchased by calling or stopping in at the History Center.
