Costco to Host Book Signing for Local Stillwater Author
Brent T. Peterson will be available to sign copies of pictorial history
One of the first institutions authorized by the Territory of Minnesota, the prison, was located in Stillwater. Three of the most notorious convicts were the Younger brothers—Cole, Jim, and Bob—who, along with Frank and Jesse James, tried to rob the bank in Northfield in 1876. The Jameses eluded capture, but the Youngers served 25 years behind the stone walls of the Stillwater Prison.
