County Information
Established: Feb.10, 1851
Parent County: Taney
County Seat: Galena
Largest city: Kimberling City
Named After: William Stone, pioneer judge and early settler of Maryland

Is situated in the southwestern part of the State, bordering on the Arkansas line-about three-fourths of the county timber land-ash, hickory,
walnut and pine-the tillable land about equally divided between bottom and up-land. 
Corn, wheat, oats, Hungarian grass, hemp, tobacco, sugar-cane, timothy, cotton, and all kinds of fruit yield good returns.  Native grapes grow in abundance.  This county is well adapted to stock growing or raising fruit of all kinds. 
Excellent water power on the James Fork of White River, Crane creek and Flat creek.
Grist mills, saw mills and carding machines needed.  Some signs of lead ore, but no mines open yet. 
Climate healthy-land cheap. Good inducements for farmers and mechanics.
