Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the old logging town of Stillwater stands among the bluffs of the St. Croix River, 25 miles east of St. Paul. Downtown, along Main Street and hugging the river, hundred-year-old brick and limestone buildings—once mercantile stores—house antiques shops, rare-book dealers, restaurants, and inns. Nearby tree-lined streets are filled with charming bed-and-breakfasts and historical homes.
