Welcome to Stilwell!

The arrival of the railroad established Stilwell in the late 1890s. Agriculture gave our area a foundation for a strong local economy.

In the 1930s, strawberries became a major crop, with 2,000 acres cultivated. In 1948 the Stilwell Kiwanis Club held a Stilwell Strawberry Festival, which was very successful. In 1949, the State legislature designated Stilwell "Strawberry Capital of the World."

Banks and manufacturing helped diversify our economy. Today, major employers include Cherokee Nation Industries, Facet Manufacturing, Tyson Foods, and Schwan's. In 1971, the railway depot was deeded to the city, then the Adair County Historical & Genealogical Association leased the building in 1999. It's where our Chamber of Commerce meets.

Our area enjoys gigabit internet service, and ICTC offers an IT training program. Stilwell is now the land of opportunity! We hope you'll enjoy our website and city.
