The Creepy Small Town In Minnesota With Insane Paranormal Activity
It should come as no surprise that the creepiest town in Minnesota is also known as the Halloween Capital of the World. Anoka, Minnesota, earned that name after it hosted the first Halloween parade in 1920. But you’ll find creepier ghosts than the costumed ones that haunt the town on Halloween. There have been many real ghost sightings over the years. So many, in fact, that a local author wrote a book – Historic Hauntings of the Halloween Capital by Roxy Orcutt – about some of the creepiest.
