Be an active participant in preserving Anoka County history!

The Anoka County Historical Society was founded by a group of dedicated community volunteers in Anoka County in 1934. They made it their mission to discover, preserve, and disseminate knowledge about the history of Anoka County in the state of Minnesota. We believe that volunteers are vital to maintaining that legacy. Find your niche in our variety of volunteer opportunities.
