Finstad's Auto Marine Shop, on Sand Bay of Rainy Lake, between Oak Ave. and Spruce St. in Ranier in Koochiching County, Minnesota, was built in 1911. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.[1]

It is a 1911 boat repair shop with its original belt-driven machinery; a well-preserved reminder of the early tourists and summer residents attracted to the Rainy Lake region.[2]
