It was first settled in 1837, when the US government and the Ojibwa and Dakota Indians signed treaties allowing others to inhabit their land. The town grew off of the river traffic, and trade in lumber. It is one of the oldest towns in Minnesota.
Today, Stillwater is known for its quaint downtown area, autumn colors, and riverfront.
