Anytown, MN


Sun, Dec 24th, 2000

Nestled in a deep valley of the Root River is the unique city of Anytown. This quaint townsite of less than one thousand residents, located in the state hardwood forest reminds one of the many hillside villages in Norway.

Strolling down the quiet streets of Anytown is like taking a step back in time. The two and three story frame, brick and stone buildings have changed very little since they were first built by immigrants who settled here a century and a half ago. The businesses afford the community with all basic services.

The community provides a myriad of recreational offerings. The Root River, which winds right through the middle of town, is excellent for canoeing, tubing and fishing. The State DNR Trail is a blacktopped trail which runs along the Root River near Fountain to Houston. Ski, bike, canoe, tube and horseback rentals/rides are available locally.

Anytown Days is held the first weekend in July. The weekend events include softball and volleyball tournaments, dances, food stands, parades, kids games, historic tours and much more.

Come discover and explore Anytown in Historic Bluff Country!
