Historic Flag Pole

Historic Flag Pole, Astoria, Oregon March 6, 2010

This old flag pole made from weathering the trunk of a tree stands just outside the east door of the Flavel House Museum.

Flavel House, Astoria, Oregon It was presented to the Clatsop County Historical Society by the American Legion's Clatsop Post 12 on November 11, 1967. My question is, what makes this flag pole historic? Clearly, it's had some history - it's old and rustic - but where was it planted? What has it seen?

I can't answer any of your questions, of course, but I like the angle of your pole shot. March 6 was a mighty fine day there.

Very good questions. I would have asked them too, if I had incomplete information like this.

Still, your photo is great. And don't you just love that beautiful and majestic old tree trunk?

I've never heard of an historic flag pole before.
