On This Date in Minnesota History: November 2

November 2, 1869 – Anoka County was formed when Sherburne County was detached from Benton County and a small strip of Ramsey County was legislated to become part of the new county Manomin. The County seat was also named Manomin, which is present-day Fridley. Manomin functioned as an organized county until abolished and attached to Anoka County by constitutional amendment [on this date].”,_Minnesota
