A beautiful piece of history.

This is the only house of flags in this country. I was amazed at all of the history here. A must see, and plan on spending a little time as there is so much to take in.

This is one of the great Museum in our county. A must see! This is the first thing we take our visitors to see. There are over 300 flags on display and very knowledgeable Docents. Open only Tues, Thurs and Sat. Located in downtown Columbus across the street from the Courthouse.

This little museum holds the collection of one man's efforts of compiling state, military, country, and historic flags. My 2 kids, ages 10 and 7, were totally fascinated! Definitely worth seeing! The docents are very helpful and informative!
