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.

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.
