Warren Jr. This two-and-a-half ton 1941 Ford farm truck of the Missouri Boat Ride became a “Hillbilly Humvee” the instant that the first Stone County Military Veteran set foot in the back of the vehicle. Thus, the vehicle transported several of the veterans in the parade to circle the square and carry them past the dignitaries on the reviewing stand. Photo by Samuel E. Warren Jr.

After the parade, people spread out to look at the quilts on display in the Stone County Courthouse, visit the Bank of Galena Museum, or shop for the art on display at the Stone County Library or to browse the booths setup around the square. Kids sought out the three-legged races and the eggs races of Swanson Park.

  1. I’ve been studying designs for over 30 years. It is safe to say that this building is the most aspiring one on the planet. Visit it once and you will agree with me!

    • I’ve always thought the Stone County Courthouse is a unique structure. It is unique how the two columns are inset on the second floor, rather than being the traditional big columns at the entrance. It is also unique how the south end of the building bulges out to keep it from looking like a square or rectangular structure.
