BRAINERD — Crow Wing County will host a public land sale auction at 10 a.m. Friday, July 29, just outside the Land Services Building, 322 Laurel St., Brainerd.

More than 200 tracts will be offered for sale at public auction. The vast majority of these tracts have had the starting bid price reduced by 25%.

Properties are located throughout the county, from the Mille Lacs Lake area in Garrison to Ideal Township, with many lots in Breezy Point, Brainerd and Crosby.

“These tax-forfeited properties have been selling fast over the past couple of years,” environmental services supervisor Ryan Simonson stated in a news release.

Among the tracts available at auction, 21 are waterfront properties and 29 are greater than 20 acres in size. Properties offered for sale can be searched through an interactive map application available at 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 stated.

The online map application provides detailed information about location, size and appraised value for all of the more than 200 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 crowwing.us . These properties are also viewable through the interactive map.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.

Hi, I'm the Brainerd Dispatch. I started working a few days before Christmas in 1881 and became a daily paper two years later.

News, weather, sports — videos, photos, podcasts and social media — all covering stories from central Minnesota about your neighbors, your lakes, your communities, your challenges and your opportunities. It's all part of the effort to keep people connected and informed. And we couldn't do it without support.
