Minnesota boasts a high percentage of people with Finnish ancestry while also boasting their very own Finland. With a population less than 200, Finland might not be huge, but its idyllic perch is a great place to live, explore and visit.
Finland is home to two branches of the Baptism River which combine and start their meandering journey eight miles southwest to Lake Superior. It is not unusual to find homes, cabins and property for sale along and nearby this scenic wonder. Other great landmarks which add to Finlands allure are Illgen Falls (marked “Illgen Cabin” on Tettegouchee State Park maps) a small-scale (45 feet high) primer of what’s to come at the second stop, the High Falls, which, at nearly 100 feet high is among of the highest waterfalls in the state]
Finland offers residents great access to the Finland State Forest and Superior National Forest, making it a good choice for buyers who appreciate nature. Property owners can also access the Timber Lake and Frear Lake chain of lakes with wilderness motor use.
