Anamoose is a small town of 282 people, in the Lakes and Gardens region of North Dakota. Located at Longitude 100.25W Latitude 47.88N.


The name of the town, Anamoose, is the Chippewa word for dog. When the Soo Line Railroad was expanding in 1893, they hired many Chippewa Indians, among others, to lay track. The Chippewa spotted a dog that roamed the area. They referred to the area as the place where the dog, or "Anamoose", lived.

Steel Lake, immediately south of Anamoose, is a prime example of an ice thrust depression formed by glaciers about 12,000 years ago.
