July 29and September 29, 1837, treaties were signed between the US government and the local Ojibwaand Dakota nations that allowed settlement in the St. Croix Valley. The town was founded by settlers drawn by the area's then-abundant lumber and river traffic, making it one of Minnesota's oldest towns, predating Minneapolisby several years. Stillwater was officially incorporated as a city March 4, 1854(the same day as St. Paul).Stillwater is often referred to as the birthplace of Minnesota. In 1848, a territorial convention that began the process of establishing Minnesota as a state was held in Stillwater at the corner of Myrtle and Main Streets. Minnesota officially became a territory in 1849 and became a state in 1858.
As more evidence of Stillwater's importance at the time, the convention selected three leading Minnesota cities as locations for three important public institutions: Minneapolis got the
University of Minnesota, Saint Paul became the capital, and Stillwater was chosen as the site of the territory's first prison. The Minnesota Territorial Prisonwas opened in 1853. Lumberingwas the predominant industry in the St. Croix River Valley in the second half of the 19th century, and for many years logs were sent down the St. Croix, collected at the St. Croix Boom Sitetwo miles upstream of Stillwater, and processed in Stillwater's many sawmills. Steamboats were used most widely from 1860– 1890, and a few are still used for entertainment purposes today.
