The John Fell House – Field of Flags

  • The John Fell House and the Allendale Historical Society invites you to participate in a patriotic community service program called “The Field of Flags”.

Please take part in making Allendale’s State and National Historic Landmark look the part for our patriotic holidays!!!!

  • We will place a 3’ by 5’ American flag on the lawn of the Fell House on the following 7 National Holidays or patriotic weekends:

Presidents Day, John Fell Day, Memorial Day, Flag Day, July 4th, Labor Day, Constitution Day  & Veteran’s Day,

For a $40 annual contribution we will place a flag for you on the front lawn of the Fell House.  This flag can be for you or named in honor of a veteran, historic figure (ie. John Fell) or person of your choice.  Your flag will also have a small sign hanging from the pole with the name of the donor and to whom the flag is honoring.   We will install your flag on the lawn and store your flag in between holidays.
