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.
