For this week’s North Carolina Thursdays post, I decided to look around Columbus, Polk County. There were a number of places that sounded interesting. I went with House of Flags Museum – https://houseofflags.org/. I felt it was a good choice for this week’s North Carolina Thursdays post. This museum combines two of my favorite topics – museums and flags. Call before planning a visit to see what the COVID-19 limitations are and if it’s open. According to the website, it’s open. It was founded September 8, 2001. It’s the only museum that displays all 27 U. S. flags.
Official Website: https://houseofflags.org/
Tuesday & Thursday 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
For school and group tours contact the House of Flags at 828-894-5640 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
