On July 29 and September 29, 1837, treaties were signed between the US government and the local Ojibwa and Dakota nations that allowed settlement in the St. Croix Valley. The town was founded by settlers drawn by the area's then-abundant lumber and river traffic, making it one of Minnesota's oldest towns, predating Minneapolis by several years. Stillwater was officially incorporated as a city March 4, 1854 (the same day as St. Paul).
Stillwater is often referred to as the birthplace of Minnesota. In 1848, a territorial convention that began the process of establishing Minnesota as a state was held in Stillwater at the corner of Myrtle and Main Streets. Minnesota officially became a territory in 1849 and became a state in 1858.
Stillwater is a popular day trip for tourists from the Twin Cities who enjoy the historic downtown's used bookstores, antique shops, restaurants, historical sites and the scenic St. Croix River valley.
Enjoy a foot tour of Downtown Stillwater, the birthplace of Minnesota. To obtain the coordinates for the cache, you will need to walk Stillwater's historic Main Street from the Train Depot to the Joseph Wolf Brewery and put the following pictures in order from north to south. All items pictured can be seen from either side of the sidewalks lining Main Street. Don't become sidetracked along the way and bring home some antiques from the many shops you will pass. Also, Thanks go out to Pear Head for the inspiration.
