  • My third grader really enjoyed his tour today. He was excited to see the Civil War sword and the children's toys. Thanks for an informative and fun tour!

    A New Flag for McAllister House

    August 26th, 2012


    Whenever the weather cooperates and the museum is open an American Flag is flown from the front porch.  The flag used these last several years was faded and worn and becoming tattered.  It also, amazingly, had 48 stars.  This is historically inaccurate both for the opening of the museum (1961) or the time of Major Henry McAllister (a 37 star flag may be seen in the library)  So Senator Mark Udall donated a 50 star flag to the Museum.  This flag previously flew over our Capital Building in Washington D.C.  During the Ice Cream Social a ceremony conducted by Scout Troop 101 removed the worn flag and installed our new one.
