What is Stone Soup?
According to Wikipedia; Stone Soup is an old folk story where strangers come to a village and ask the villagers to share a small amount of food each to make enough food for everyone.
Museum Curator, Jamie Simmons said in a press release
Bringing people together and creating a community exemplifies how our town - born in two states - has prospered for 150 years.
