City of Sebeka
The city of Sebeka is a friendly, small community with a population of 710 and sits attractively at the crossroads of US Hwy 71 and MN Hwy 227. Don’t let the small size fool you—Sebeka has all of the services of a larger community with small town charm. Primarily an agricultural area, the town is close to the pine forests and lakes area, and has a park with a museum, camping facilities and the Red Eye River to welcome visitors and residents alike.
Sebeka got it’s start in 1878, but wasn’t incorporated until 1898. The Anderson Pioneer Store was the first store in Sebeka and as early as 1891, Sebeka had a sawmill, a general store and a large log hotel that became a popular meeting place.
