Crow Wing County will host a public land sale auction 10 a.m. Friday, Dec. 7, in the meeting rooms of the Land Services Building, 322 Laurel St., Brainerd.

Eighty-six tracts of tax-forfeited land valued at $1.9 million will be offered for sale. The properties are throughout the county, from the Mille Lacs Lake area in Garrison to Ideal Township, with many lots in Brainerd and Crosby.

"These tax-forfeited properties have been selling fast over the past two years," Environmental Services Supervisor Ryan Simonson said in a news release.

Among the tracts available at auction, 42 are waterfront properties and 19 are greater than 20 acres in size. Properties offered for sale can be searched through an interactive map application available at https://taxforfeit.crowwing.us.

"Whether people are interested in sites for building, seasonal use or recreation, there are a variety of tracts available for purchase throughout Crow Wing County," Simonson said.

The online map application provides detailed information about location, size and appraised value for all 86 tracts offered at auction. Interested buyers may also contact land services staff at 218-824-1010 or email landservices@crowwing.us for more information.

Properties offered at auction in prior years that remain unsold are available for direct purchase any time over-the-counter. Contact the land services department or search "land sale" at the county webpage. These properties are also viewable through the interactive map.
