Lakeland, Minnesota is a city in Washington County. It lies along the St. Croix River in the Lower St Croix Valley. Lakeland was platted in 1849 as the Village of Lakeland. In the 1850s commercial development began to take place. As the area grew, mills were established and when the railroad came through additional plots were entered in hopes of development, but many plots were never developed.
