Leaf pickup will begin Monday October 15th. PLEASE rake leaves into street away from the storm drains. CIP 12: The curbing will be completed today (Wednesday) and the driveways will be completed on Wednesday and Thursday. You can drive on your driveways SEVEN days after they are installed! The contractors will begin work on the road surfaces on Thursday, Friday and Saturday with the blacktop work scheduled for Monday and/or Tuesday (October 22nd and 23rd). Sod work will begin also that week of October 22nd (I am guessing after the blacktop is completed).

The Beginning

Stewartville was founded in 1857 as a small prairie village. There were three streets off of Main Street – Lake, Center, and Church. During this period the cornerstone of Stewartville was the mill built on the banks of the river. When the railroad come through town, Stewartville grew as a regional farming and industrial center. Lake Street became the premier residential address. “Silk Stocking Row” was the home of doctors, lawyers, and entrepreneurs.
