Hard to believe that 40 years have gone by since we walked the halls of Elk River High School. It seems like yesterday that study hall was a joke, and lunch was the social hour. Hall passes, announcements, gym, electives, special after-school groups … all dust in the wind.

Keep the high school memories alive with us by submitting your photos by emailing them to us at We’ll share the images here. Please add identifying information and the story behind the photo.


Elk River has grown steadily into a bedroom community of the Twin Cities. The population in 1981 was 6,785. In 2020, the estimate is 26,582. What a change.
