Elk River, MN Court Reporting
Located just thirty-four miles northwest of Minneapolis, Elk River, MN is the proud county seat for Sherburne County. Nicknamed, “Energy City”, Elk River was actually named by Zebulon Pike after noticing the many herds of elk he saw as he passed through the area on his exploration of the upper Mississippi River in 1805.
Today, Elk River and Sherburne County are in one of the fastest growing corridors in the state and the country. The population growth and the area’s high commuter rate factored heavily into the approval of the Northstar Commuter Rail service from Minneapolis to Big Lake, MN.
