The grant will be used to enhance the presentation of educational programs at the new museum location in Columbus. Remodeling of the old fire station, that was also the first town hall for Columbus at 33 Gibson Street, is presently underway. The building was “donated” to the House of Flags by the Polk County Commissioners for a 30-year lease at a cost of $1 per year. A date for the grand opening at the new location has not yet been set.
