ST. CLOUD – Sam Pandolfo, Alice Wheelock Whitney, and other prominent St. Cloud residents gathered at the Stearns History Museum today (Thursday). Actually, it was just current residents playing those iconic characters in our city’s past.

They’re part of a new program at the museum that will help bring history alive during pre-planned tours.  Doug Petersen of St. Cloud plays a 1925 Swedish quarry worker.
