House of Flags receives grants for second floor remodeling
Published 4:37 pm Friday, June 29, 2012
The House of Flags Museum in Columbus recently received several grants.
A substantial instant grant from the Polk County Community Foundation (PCCF) will be coupled with an earlier PCCF grant to fund a lift to the second floor of the museum. The installation of the lift will allow the museum to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990.
The lift is part of the Phase II remodeling of the second floor of the museum currently under way. When it is completed in the next several months, the second floor will have a large presentation room/meeting room and a library.
The museum has also received a significant grant from the Carolina Foothills Chamber of Commerce. That grant will be used as part of the funding for the second-floor remodeling project – specifically for the heating and air conditioning system.
The House of Flags Museum is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, and contributions are tax deductible. The museum is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and on Saturday from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Admission is free.
