Logging was important in Stillwater’s early days, and many beautiful limestone buildings from that era now house specialty shops, antique and art dealers, inns, and a variety of restaurants. Beautiful churches and stately homes adorn its hillsides along with a historic courthouse and other architechturally significant buildings. Even the Water Deparment has a handsome home. Savor the details by walking or riding an excursion trolley; take to the river in a gondola or aboard a paddleboat for a broader view. When its time for refreshment, enjoy premier dining on land or aboard a train, sample lighter fare in a pleasant pub, or picnic in one of the lovely parks.
