Coon Rapid’s first industry was agriculture, with farms of every size covering the area. In 1835, the Red River Ox Cart Trail was laid for trade and military relations between Anoka and Minneapolis, and Coon Rapids found itself in the heart of a new industry. The Anoka Pressed Brick and Terra Cotta Company sprung up and pumped money into the city’s economy, and the Clay Hole where the resources were mined still lies within city limits. The Red River Ox Cart Trail is still intact and is now called Coon Rapids Boulevard. In 1912, the building of the Coon Rapids Dam gave the city another economic boost and was the regional power source for the giant Northern States Power Company.
