We went to Stillwater for dinner and a concert last evening, and I am always charmed by this picturesque river town known as the birthplace of Minnesota. Not only are its streets lined with historic homes, the city itself is on the National Register of Historic Places.


Many people know downtown Stillwater on the riverfront as a popular tourist stop, lined with unique shops including antique stores, art galleries, sweet shops, wine bars and restaurants… but Stillwater is also a great place to live. If you would love living in a historic home in a small town setting only a half hour from the city, check out this charming place that Forbes called one of American's Prettiest Towns.
