The city will provide parking for the Mad Hatter at the adjacent Carpenter’s Union, which will be demolished soon, Braun said.

Anoka County’s oldest building is the Banfill-Locke farm house in Fridley, now housing an arts center. It was built in 1847 as an inn and tavern on the Red River Trail, which ran up the Mississippi and through Anoka, Mahon said. The second-oldest building is also in Anoka. The Shaw-Hammons House, built in 1852, sits a few blocks north of the Woodbury house.
