Ane known nationally because of the Battle of Ane in 1227. The Battle of Ane was a battle between a knight leader of the bishop of Utrecht, Otto van Lippe, and the troops of Coevorden, Rudolf II of Coevorden. The latter was supported by Drentse farmers. The Drents knew how to defeat the bishop's army, where the bishop himself died. In the National Tinnen Figures Museum in Ommen there are 4 dioramas of the Battle of Ane.
- The only national monument of Ane is the Anermolen (Anerveenseweg 26) from 1864. The Anermolen is a milling mill. With enough wind, therefore, wheat and maize are regularly ground. The grinding is made possible by an enthusiastic chicken farmer who supplies the grain and decreases the flour. The mill receives about 6,000 visitors annually. The mill can be seen on Saturday afternoon, in summer also on Wednesday afternoon, and by appointment.
- The former Reformed Church Vrijgemaakt (De Vaart 8) was out of use in 1979 and is now used as a garage.
- Monument to the Battle of Ane (see History) from 1967.
- In Ane we still find some halls farms. This farm type, consisting of a mid beak with side beams, is of architectural, cultural and landscape importance.
