The City of St. Anthony has received the League of Minnesota Cities’ City of Excellence award and has been named a Minnesota Green Step City thanks to its healthy environments, active citizens and efficient use of resources. With downtown Minneapolis only 4 miles away, owners of St. Anthony real estate can jump on Interstate 35W, Highway 10, County Highway 88 or Silver Lake Road and be in the heart of a major city in minutes.

The land on which St. Anthony homes for sale are built was originally part of the great Louisiana Purchase in 1803. 30 years later, a storekeeper named Franklin Steele claimed the land east of St. Anthony Falls, and in 1848 he developed what would soon become a center of trade and milling. The township organized in 1858, but lost much of its land to Minneapolis in 1887, and St. Anthony became a quiet village of vegetable and hog farmers. However, after World War II, the city recovered much of the lost acreage, and in the process, grew into the more cosmopolitan St. Anthony that we know today. In the subsequent decades, St. Anthony has focused its efforts on maintaining the feeling of a cozy village while updating and rehabilitating the area constantly.
