PCHA to host night at the museum Nov. 15

Published 8:00 am Friday, November 2, 2018

On Thursday, Nov. 15, the Polk County Historical Museum will be open for citizens young and old to see what the local museum has to offer.

Featured during the night will be characters from the local area’s past, who will walk around the facility in period clothing. The event will be held from 6-8 p.m. at the museum on 60 Walker St., Columbus.

“We heard from people that they often cannot attend our programs because they work during the day,” said Pat McCool, local president of the historical association. “Our directors thought this would be a unique way for the historical association to reach out to the community.”

Plans are still being formalized, but a railroad station master, school teacher, Civil War soldier and the father of Polk County, Columbus Mills, will be on hand for the nighttime museum opening.

There is no cost to attend this event, and the public is invited to attend.
