72-Year-Old Abandoned Air Force Base Currently for Sale in Minnesota
Finland, MN is located in the far northeast portion of the state. It's an hour and 15 minutes northeast of Duluth.
So if you're a fan of that portion of the state or you just want a place to get away from everything, this property could be perfect for you. As long as you're ok with a project.
According to the listing from Red Pine Realty, it's a total of 101 acres that were used at an Air Force radio station. It closed in 1980 and hasn't really been touched since.
It lists 3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom but I really don't think any of the homes are a turnkey situation.
There are a whopping 43 homes already on the property, though. Plus, "the roads, driveways, sidewalks, fire hydrants, power, propane, foundations, septic and water are all in place."
It's about a 10-minute drive from the shores of Lake Superior and the views are awesome because you're on Lookout Mountain.
Also, because of the amount of land, there are lots of opportunities for hiking, biking, skiing, and snowmobile trails.
It was all originally built back in 1951 and it's currently listed for $800,000.
Ideas for how you could use this property include starting a resort. Or you could make it a vacation spot for just you and your family.
You could get all of your friends to come live in this community together. Or you could just say screw everyone else and take your family to go live there full-time and get some peace and quiet.
This place is quite the opportunity for someone willing to put in the work.
