History and Hauntings of the Halloween Capital takes a look into why the small village of Anoka, MN has been declared (by Congress and everything!) The Halloween Capital of the World. History and Hauntings of the Halloween Capital takes a fun and spook look at the elements that make up the unique town of Anoka. From the rivers along its borders and limestone under foot to the historical locations and rich characters that helped put Anoka of the world map, even to those characters who seem to stick around after they’ve long shuffled off the mortal coil. History and Hauntings of the Halloween Capital mixes together the popular ghost stories of Anoka as well as answers to the question we in Anoka are so frequently asked, “Why is Anoka the Halloween Capital?”
Review: “Roxy Orcutt’s debut is a delightfully wicked combination of history, wit, and wonder. Even readers far from the midwest will be bewitched by her analytical and anecdotal depiction of one of America’s most unusual towns.”
~Brian Landon, author of A Prairie Homicidal Companion
