Proposed House of Flags museum in Columbus, N.C.

Our future

Second Floor Presentation Classroom, Library & Reading Room, & Conference Room

Donations Make a Difference at the House of Flags

The 2,500-square foot ground floor remodeling project was completed in time for our Grand Opening on November 11, 2011. Nearly 300 people were in attendance for the beginning of a new era in our Museum

The second floor has undergone a complete remodeling too. A wheel chair lift is installed thanks to a generous grant from the Polk County Community Foundation. The large presentation room that seats 50 people was completed with funds provided by the Foothills Chamber of Commerce Foundation, Duke Energy, Wal-Mart, the Tennant Foundation, and a generous grant from the Timken Foundation of Canton (Ohio).

The Board Room on the second floor provides meeting space for small groups with furnishings made possible from the Tryon Rotary Club Foundation. And a growing reference library features hundreds of unique books relating to flags and flag history - a vexillologist’s haven.

Fundraising continues. While the Museum is fully operational and the building is substantially complete, there is always an opportunity to improve exhibits, tend to landscaping, and repair small portions of the exterior, and maintain the aging heating/air-conditioning on the ground floor.
