Ambrose Mills portrays his ancestor, Col. Ambrose Mills, for an audience of students from the Polk County Recreation Department. Mills told the children about the Polk County Historical Museum, located on Walker Street in Columbus.
In 2011, Mills said, more than 800 people visited the Polk County history museum from nearly half the states in the United States, as well as from Toronto and British Columbia in Canada and Liverpool, England. The museum is open Tuesday and Thursday from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., the same hours as the newly opened House of Flags Museum in Columbus.
