Blaine has flowered from a richly pioneer-laden history. Blaine split away from the city of Anoka in 1877. Shortly after Blaine separated from Anoka its first elections were held. The town began to develop as more settlers arrived, though Blaine's abundant wetlands and sandy soils prevented farming from booming. In time it became known for wide-open spaces near scenic bodies of water, all a good distance from downtown Minneapolis and St. Paul. Now it is a community rich in liveliness, sport and pride.
