There are many kinds of stories about the the St. Croix river region.. some involve people we remember from our families, our customs or our communities; some stories are about a famous event or a recurring event such as an annual festival. Stories can also be about special places -- historic, natural or cultural -- and your memories of visiting them. Or they can be about specific places or people and cultures that lived in our region previously. There really are no right or wrong answers about what a story can be.
