STONE COUNTIANS IN WORLD WAR I.
Join us for a special WWI program on Sunday, May 28, 2017 at 2 pm with storyteller Charley Sandage and the band, Harmony. The trio will perform original songs composed by Sandage about Stone County men in WWI.
The stories of these men are remarkable and certainly worth remembering and honoring. The Stone County Honor Guard will present the colors. Admission is free to this event at the Edwin Luther Auditorium in the Stone County Historical Society complex at 206 School Avenue, Mountain View.
A special 80-page WWI publication by editor Robbie Purdom will be available after June 1.
Submissions WelcomedSubmissions of historic photos are welcomed. Submit via e-mail for display on the website, or e-mail to make arrangements for an original to be scanned and added to the permanent collection. Please include complete identification of individuals and location, if known, and include name and contact information for the person submitting the photo.
A new publication, “Onia: A history of a small community in Stone County,” is now available from the Stone County Historical Society. It includes stories about descendants of Ben and Malissa Balentine, who came to Stone County in 1873, the year the county was formed.
Members can pick up their copy of the book any Thursday, Friday or Saturday at the Museum. The book is also available for sale for $10 at C.K. Lancaster’s on the square in Mountain View.
