Spring comes to Stillwater

The warm weather has brought walkers, motorcyclists and shoppers to Stillwater in numbers not usually seen this early.

Stillwater

Stillwater is one of the oldest towns in Minnesota. Settlers from the east began arriving soon after treaties with Ojibwe and Dakota tribes were signed in the late 1830s. Stillwater’s picturesque setting on the St. Croix River, charming old buildings, Victorian houses, boating opportunities, antique shops, and restaurants have made it a popular tourist destination.

The warm weather we’ve had in Minnesota has brought walkers, ice cream eaters, motorcyclists and shoppers to Stillwater in numbers not usually seen at this time of year. Here are some photos from a sunny, breezy afternoon last weekend.
