The National Flag Day Foundation’s Americanism Center

If you’re a Yankee Doodle Dandy like me, then you’re going to love the National Flag Day Foundation.  Located in Waubeka, WI on former “school grounds”, the National Flag Day Foundation is keeping Flag Day Observance alive by getting America‘s youth involved.

In 1995 the National Flag Day Foundation built what they call the “Americanism Center” that contains a museum, a commemorative courtyard, and (my personal favorite) an “Avenue of Flags“.

Along side each fringed flag is a political , economic, and military history of our great country. The National Flag Day Foundation also utilizes the Avenue of Flags as a teaching tool for school groups that are invited to tour the facilities free of charge.

The balance of their building is occupied by Scouts, American Legion, 4-H groups, the Lions Club, and senior citizens. It is open continuously and there is no charge for using the facilities.

The whole museum is open to the public anytime by request at:

(262) 692-2385 *or* (262) 692-2811.
