The Columbus Lions members were given a private tour of the House of Flags before their last meeting by Bob and Judy Lair, Frank Ortiz and Paul Sutherland of the House of Flags staff. The hosts took turns explaining the growth of the museum from its founding by George Scofield, its early home in Green Creek, through the renovation of the old fire station in Columbus, to its present ground floor exhibit space for many of its 300 flags.
The next step for the House of Flags is the renovation of the second floor to add both work space and more exhibit space.
Normal hours of operation for the museum are the same as those for the Polk County Historical Museum for the convenience of visitors to both: Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.
