Groningen is an unincorporated community in Dell Grove Township, Pine County, Minnesota, United States.

History[edit]

Located in the northeast corner of Dell Grove Township, Groningen is named after a northeast province of the Netherlands. The community was originally known as Miller Station. When it had a post office, it was known as Belknap from 1877 to 1881, and then Groningen, from 1896 to 1913, and again from 1917 to 1954.
