Welcome to Stillwater!

The Birthplace of Minnesota

A little bit about Stillwater

Located along the beautiful St. Croix River, Stillwater is home to history, gorgeous scenery, excellent schools, charming downtown, infamous Liftbridge, and wonderful community. Stillwater is known as “The birthplace of Minnesota” due to its historic relevance in establishing Minnesota as a territory in 1848 on Main St. and Myrtle.

Stillwater quickly became a thriving lumber town, hauling logs down the St. Croix to the many sawmills of the town. Even after the lumber industry ended, the town  was still able to thrive and prosper. Today, Stillwater is known for its Victorian era homes, stunning architecture, incredible restaurants, vibrant boutiques, beautiful parks, bed and breakfasts, endless views, community spirit, and numerous year round events and activities. Tourist come from all over, amazed at what they see, and never want to leave. There is no town like Stillwater.
