History:  

Goodland Township has another auspicious name, found likewise in Indiana, Michigan, and Kansas. The village in section 16 began as a logging camp for the Swan River Logging Company and was called Gardner, possibly for a local attorney by that name; it was platted in 1903 by C. H. Phinney Land Company, who renamed the community with a more descriptive term. Its post office began in 1903; it had a station of the Great Northern Railway.

The Goodland Volunteer Fire Department first came into existence in 1975 thanks to a group of hard working and dedicated citizens of the Goodland Township. The first fire hall was in the old Goodland School House which was eventually torn down when the new community center and fire hall were built. Servicing 72 square miles and approximately 500 citizens, the fire department is authorized up to 20 volunteers and currently has 18. The department does both fire fighting and emergency first response as well as providing mutual aid support to all the surrounding fire departments in Itasca, Aitkin and St. Louis Counties.
