PCHA Night at the Museum on November 16th

Published 7:56 pm Tuesday, November 2, 2021

On Tuesday, November 16th 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 6pm to 8pm at the museum on 60 Walker Street. 

 

“We were disappointed that our event last year had to be cancelled due to Covid,” said Pat McCool, President of the Historical Association. “In the past we heard from people that they often can not attend our daytime programs because they work. Therefore we are sponsoring this nighttime event.”

 

Plans are still being formalized but a half dozen reenactors will be on hand including the volunteers of the Overmountain Men for the nighttime museum opening. There is no cost to attend this event and the public is encouraged to attend. The museum is located at 60 Walker Street in downtown Columbus.

 

Attendees will be expected to wear face coverings during the event.
