History:  

Hovland was settled during the late 1880s by fishermen of primarily Scandinavian ancestry. Hovland post office was established in 1889, named after settler Ole Brunes' place of origin in Norway. The Trefoldighets Evangelisk Norsk Lutherske menighet, a Hauge Synod Lutheran congregation, was organized in 1909. The congregation continues as Trinity Lutheran and is noted for the distinctive architecture of its stone church, begun in 1947.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

HOVLAND, the oldest organized township of this county, is in compliment to a pioneer settler named Brunes for his native place in Norway. The village is located in section 20. In 1888 Ole Brunes and Nels Ludwig Eliasen, two Norwegian carpenters from Duluth, built a log cabin on Brunes's homestead, the two families living together until Eliasen finished a cabin on the adjoining homestead, and other settlers followed. Fishing, logging, and trapping were the principal occupations. Until the post office was established in 1889, the community was called Chicago for the bay on which it is located, that name being used primarily by the Booth Packing Company as their ship's regular stop to pick up fishermen's boxes and barrels. The name was rejected by local residents because it was a corruption of the Ojibwe word Shikag/Jikag, meaning "skunk"; the name Hovland was submitted by Anna Brunes, taken from her grandfather's estate in Norway.

Grand Marais, MN 55604
Phone: (218) 387-3039

Come for the quiet, the solitude, and the famous Devil's Kettle waterfall. The most popular hike leads from the trailhead upstream along the Brule River to Devil's Kettle, where the river splits around a mass of volcanic rock. Half of the river plunges 50 feet into a pool, while the rest pours into a huge pothole. Anglers can catch brook and rainbow trout in the Brule River or its tributary, Gauthier Creek. The park offers camping, picnicking and hiking.
