COLUMBUS—At this month’s Polk County Historical Association program, community members are asked to bring in their favorite family heirloom, historical photo or interesting item from the past. The history lovers at PCHA are looking forward to the audience participation.  

“We did a similar program several years ago, and it was extremely popular,” said James Metcalf, chief docent for the museum. “With our rich Polk County history, we are always pleasantly surprised at what local folks bring in for their ‘show and tell.’”

The March program will take place on Tuesday, March 12 at 2 p.m., inside the Polk County Museum. Admission is free.

As with all of their monthly programs, the public is invited. Organizers ask that attendees remember to bring a historic item to the event. The museum is located in downtown Columbus at 60 Walker Street.
