Every small town has their own private, personal things that anyone past a ten-mile radius would have no freakin' clue what the townsfolk were talkin' about.

Stockbridge has a wealth of words, places, people & events that mean something to the residents but leave out-of-towners completely clueless and feeling stupid.

That being said, if you're from Stockbridge and under 40, you STILL might not have a clue about the following things.....if so, ask anyone a few years older - they might be able to help.
So here's a list of "40 Things Only People From Stockbridge Would Know".....
