Historic Downtown Walking Tour




People of all ages will enjoy learning of the stories behind the buildings, comparing the historic lumber era and today. At each featured property, download a video on your handheld device and relive the past of that specific location.

 

Instead of offering a standard guided walking tour, the Stillwater Heritage Preservation Commission developed this self-guided audio and visual walking tour, bringing story and place together, for both residents and visitors to the community. However, tour brochures are available throughout the community and at Stillwater City Hall (216 North 4th Street).
