Did Al Capone Have a Secret Minnesota Hideout?
Al Capone was one of the most notorious gangsters of the twentieth century who gained notoriety during the prohibition era as the leader of the Chicago mob scene.
While most of Capone's comings and goings were in the Chicagoland area, he did have several hideouts spread across the Midwest, including a rumor of not one, but two cabins in the Land of Ten Thousand Lakes.
Remnants of these two alleged hideouts remain deep in the Minnesota woods and most where they're located might surprise you.
One of these alleged locations is found just outside of the unincorporated Minnesota town of Finland, which is found along the north shore of Lake Superior, around 40 miles northeast of the town of Two Harbors.
Pictured below is all that's left of the cabin, which includes the chimney and foundation.
According to the Inforum Website, locals in the area have been talking about Capone's getaway cabin for decades:
The residence included a main lodge, a swimming pool and a horse stable. A number of cabins for guests also lined the property.
Stories of Capone's Finland getaway also include notice of a large, underground safe where it is presumed Capone kept ammunition.
The property was located along Heffelfinger Road, according to Northern Wilds .
Another alleged hideout for Al Capone is the Naniboujou Social Club, which is located in Grand Marais and is widely believed to be a spot where the mobster was able to get away from the public eye and relax.
