History:  

VINELAND, a village and port of Mille Lacs near its outlet, in Kathio, was named for the early Norse settlement on the northeast coast of North America in the year 1000, visited by numerous later voyages, which was called in the Icelandic language Vinland, meaning Wineland, from grapes found there. Its post office was called Vineland from 1891 to 1921 and Wigwam Bay from 1921 to 1929, at which time it was discontinued.
