First Congregational Church of Clearwater

405 Bluff St.   Built in the mid 1800's.  During the Dakota Uprising a stockade was built around the church to provide safety for the settlers. Supposedly, a tunnel ran from the basement of the church toward the river, affording pioneers an escape route in case of Indian attack.

It is currently being remodeled as a private residence. 


Of all the buildings in the City of Clearwater, this is the one that has the richest history. . . some of that history has been passed down through generations of long-time families in the area, but little can actually be documented through credible printed records. So it will remain a mystery and the colorful stories will continue to be passed on.
