Originally a Native village along the river, then a lumbering boom town, Stillwater, Minnesota, gained national fame for antiquing and rare books. Now Stillwater teems with silent sports habitats, trails, and waterways. With the collaboration of many governmental and community organizations and its citizenry, all networking their assets together, Stillwater has become a vibrant and resilient city for silent sports enthusiasts.
All of this sporting opportunity locates along the 252-mile Saint Croix River National Scenic Riverway, which forms the boundary between Minnesota and Wisconsin. Stillwater draws its name from the calmness of waters near its downtown and is recognized as “The birthplace of Minnesota” (1848). With a population of about 20,000, sitting 20 miles east of Minneapolis-St Paul, from which it draws many of its visitors, Stillwater has some little-known facts, which include: In 1921, Charles Strite invented the automatic pop-up bread toaster in Stillwater; and Denis McDonough, born and raised in Stillwater, became President Obama’s White House Chief of Staff.
