A key part of the Heritage Initiative process is identifying interesting stories about the region around the St. Croix River and its tributaries. Do you know of a special place, local history, or community tradition that makes this region unique and important? Please share it using our special online form.
Stories don’t need to be limited to the St. Croix River, but are open to anywhere in the region defined by the river, including along tributaries like the Namekagon, Kettle, Snake, Apple and Kinnickinnic Rivers. This is a great way to not only participate in the Initiative, but also to share more broadly the places and stories with other participants and people throughout the region.
It’s also fun to browse the stories that have already been submitted. A few highlights include:
- The Sandrock Cliffs near Grantsburg
- Afton’s annual Fourth of July parade
- The Arcola High Bridge north of Stillwater
- Homestead Parklands on Perch Lake near Houlton
- The Swinging Bridge at Glen Park in River Falls
- And many more.
So, read a few stories, get inspired, and take a couple minutes to share your own!
