On Tuesday, November 19, the Polk County Historical Museum is going to be open for citizens young and old to see what our local museum has to offer. Featured during the night will be characters from our past walking around the facility in period clothing. The event will be held from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the museum, located on 60 Walker Street in Columbus. 


“We heard from people who often say they cannot attend our programs because they work during the day,” said Pat McCool, President of the Historical Association. “Last year’s event was very well received so the association directors wanted to offer this special program again.”

Plans are still being finalized, but a railroad station master, school teacher, Civil War soldier and yes, 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 encouraged to attend.
