Being
Assembled

The new 120 foot fiberglass flagpole was installed on June 17, 2005.  It is about 3 or 4 feet west of the old pole.  The stump of the old pole is still in the ground.  The flag will be first flown on July 4th, at a dedication ceremony beginning at 9:00am.

The flagpole cost $40,000.  Total costs, including removing the old flagpole were about $171,000.  The old flagpole as dedicated on September 9, 1905 (installed on September 5th) and removed on October 7, 2004.  It has been moved about 15 feet in 1959.
