Arcola Mills, six miles north of Stillwater, Minnesota, is one of the largest undeveloped parcels of land on the shoreline of the nationally designated wild and scenic St. Croix River.
The Arcola Mills Historic Foundation is a non-profit organization that was created at the bequest of Katharine Van Meier upon her death. Great care is being given to preserve the natural woodland beauty and historic building. The lumber-era Greek Revival mansion, built in 1847, is currently being restored with the future goal of restoring eight eclectic cottages.
Arcola Mills provides an area where individuals and groups are invited to participate in activities that explore the arts, nature, science, history, and a broad exchange of ideas. Arcola Mills is a place where respect and stewardship are valued.
