History:  

STILLWATER, the county seat, was founded in 1843, and on October 26 of that year its name, "proposed by John McKusick, was adopted. This name was suggested by the stillness of the water in the lake, the anomaly of building a mill beside still water, and by fond recollections of Stillwater, Maine" (History of Washington County and the St. Croix Valley, p. 500). The city was incorporated on the same date as St. Paul, March 4, 1854, and the township was organized in May 1858. The earliest settlement here was by Joseph R. Brown, 1838-41, platting a townsite that he named Dahkotah on the north part of the present city area. The city was the county seat of St. Croix County, Wisconsin Territory, and continued as the county seat when the name was changed to Still Water, the post office name when it was established in 1846, with Elam Greeley as the first postmaster; the post office was transferred to Minnesota Territory in 1849, and Stillwater became the county seat of Washington County, the oldest county seat in the present state boundaries. Section 4 of Baytown Township was platted as an addition to Stillwater in 1856.
