Welcome to the City of Marine on St. Croix. Marine is located along the scenic St. Croix River 12 miles north of Stillwater and 15 miles south of Taylors Falls.
The Village Hall, Community Library, Lutheran Church, Stone House Museum, Mill Site and Fire Hall are all sources of pride to the approximate 700 residents of Marine.
Marine on St. Croix, founded as Marine Mills in 1839 was the site of the first commercial saw mill along the St. Croix River. The Mill Site is located behind and south of the Village Hall and has been declared a national historical site.
Once a busy river town with a population of 650 during the 1880's, Marine is now a community whose residents treasure the atmosphere of a friendly small town and county life with the advantages of being near a metropolitan area. In 1964, a group of residents established the Restoration Society to preserve the unique quality of this historical riverside town as it enjoys new growth and the advantages of both city and country living.
