Recently, several Bureau County residents assisted in scraping and repainting the flagpole at the Matson building, which was acquired in 2014 by the Bureau County Historical Society as a gift from Robert Sash of Tiskilwa. The BCHS is making plans to turn the former library in to a county History Center.

Using a reverse Iwo Jima maneuver, several volunteers lowered the flagpole to rest on the old bicycle rack to begin the sprucing up activities.
