The historic reconstruction of the Stillwater riverfront was undertaken to identify existing and destroyed historic, architectural and historic archeological sites on a stretch of the waterfront some 5,400 feet east of Water Street. This investigation is primarily for planning various alternative structures and locations for floodproofing the downtown area. Under consideration at the present time are a combination of folding and permanent floodwalls and earthern levees. The research turned up 117 sites in the study area. Of these, only one, the Interstate Bridge, built in 1930, is recommended as being potentially eligible for nomination to the National Register of Historic Places. It is not impacted by any of the Corps floodproofing alternatives. A folding floodwall in front of the historic freight depot will protect that site.
