Isaac Staples Sawmill

 

This is a photo from the John Runk Collection at the Stillwater Public Library. It was taken ca. 1870. This location is on north Main Street, just below Pioneer Park. This was not the first sawmill in Stillwater and was purchased by Isaac Staples in 1869.  To view a "Time Tunnel" between 2017 and 1870 at this same location, just click anywhere on the photo above.

This is the same location of the Staples Sawmill in 2017. The photo shows the large steel clad building to the left of the stone powerhouse and chimney. This was once the location of the Stillwater Manufacturing Company, a subsidiary of The Northwest Thresher Company.
