State Highway 1, County Road 6, and County Road 7 are three of the main routes in the community.
The community is located within the Finland State Forest in Lake County.
Finland is home to a community center, one Lutheran church, (which was apparently struck by lightning on 6 July, 2013 and burned down http://www.startribune.com/local/214584451.html), a post office, Wolf Ridge Environmental Learning Center, and the Organic Consumer's Association.
Local business establishments include a gas station, a motel, four bars, and a cooperative general store.
The community was settled mainly by Finnish immigrants in 1895. From the late 1890s to the early 1950s, it was a popular destination for Finnish immigrants. In the present day, a majority of the people in the community are Finnish Americans. In 1967 a postage stamp honoring the fiftieth anniversary of Finland's (Europe) independence was issued by the U.S. Post Office Department, and first placed on sale in Finland, Minnesota.
