Map showing Elm Point in relation to the Northwest Angle

Elm Point, Minnesota, in Lake of the Woods County, Minnesota, is a small uninhabited[1] cape and a United States practical exclave, southwest of the Northwest Angle,[2] near the First Nation community of Buffalo Point. It borders Canada's province of Manitoba at the 49th parallel and is separated from the rest of the continental United States by Lake of the Woods.

In addition to Elm Point, there are a few small, unnamed parcels of land that extend a few hundred feet south of the 49th parallel, west of Elm Point but east of the contiguous land mass of Minnesota, which would therefore be American territory.[1]
