Ghosts of Anoka Walking Tours

What better place to go exploring for ghosts than in the City of Anoka, Halloween Capital of the World?
Stories abound in Anoka of odd happenings and eerie encounters. There is a house where the rocking chair rocks with no one sitting in it. A business in town has employees who won’t enter parts of the building because of the woman seen only in a mirror. There are doors that lock themselves, displays that change on their own, cold drafts…..might they all speak of things unexplained?

Our costumed tour guides will take you on a walk through historic neighborhoods of Anoka. You’ll view (from the outside) homes and businesses that have been privy to some unexplained events, while your guide shares real stories that have been brought to the Anoka County Historical Society by the people who live and work in these buildings. Sixty percent history, forty percent folklore; these stories are just part of the fun you will experience on your Ghosts of Anoka tour.

Advance reservations are required. We cannot accommodate walk-ups.
Tours are limited to 24 participants. Tours often sell out, so register early.
