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.
A post office called Finland has been in operation since 1915 and a cooperative general store was established in 1913, which is Minnesota's longest continuously operated store. A large share of the early settlers being natives of Finland caused the name to be selected.
The Lutheran church was apparently struck by lightning on 6 July 2013 and burned down.
