St. Anthony, also known as Saint Anthony Village, is a city in Hennepin and Ramsey counties in Minnesota. At the 2010 census the population was 8,226, of whom 5,156 lived in the larger Hennepin County part of the city and 3,070 in the Ramsey County part. The city is run by a five-member council consisting of a mayor and four council members who serve four-year terms.
St. Anthony was also the name of Minneapolis’s older twin city, across from downtown Minneapolis on the Mississippi River’s east bank. Minneapolis and St. Anthony merged in 1872. There is also a city named St. Anthony in Stearns County.
St. Anthony’s origins date to 1838, when Franklin Steele, a storekeeper at Fort Snelling, made a claim on the land east of St. Anthony Falls. Steele did not begin developing the land until 1848, but it quickly became a center of milling and trade much like the neighboring town of Minneapolis on the land west of the falls. In 1858 the town was formally organized as the Township of St. Anthony.
St. Anthony is served by the St. Anthony-New Brighton School District, ISD 282. Wilshire Park Elementary School is the district’s primary school. St. Anthony Middle School serves grades 6–8. St. Anthony Village High School serves grades 9–12. St. Charles Borromeo offers private education for grades K–8.
St. Anthony has several city parks. The most notable is Central Park, in the center of the city near the High School and Community Center, as well as the police station, fire station and water treatment plant. Several of the high school’s athletic teams host home competitions in Central Park. Smaller parks include Emerald Park, Silver Point Park, and Trillium Park. St. Anthony also has a golf course maintained by the Minneapolis Parks and Recreation Board and a county park, Silverwood, maintained by the Three Rivers Park District. Silverwood Park is on Silver Lake, which is almost entirely within St. Anthony’s boundaries.
