This Haunted Tunnel In Minnesota Is Not For The Faint Of Heart

You may know Anoka as the Halloween Capital of the World. It’s a nickname earned by hosting one of the first ever Halloweens in the United States, way back in 1920. But what if I told you Anoka’s spooky past started two decades before that? In 1900, Anoka State Hospital – then called Anoka Asylum – opened its doors to mentally ill people from across the region. Over time, the story of the hospital – and the tunnel that ran beneath its buildings – became a creepy Minnesota legend.
