Polk Presidential Hall - Columbia, TN

Polk Presidential Hall - Columbia, TN

This Church which is currently being restored is next door to the Polk home in Columbia, TN. More information can be found here:

Except:
The building was originally erected by Archibald Sinclair in 1882 as Christian Church. The property was later conveyed to the Tennessee Orphan Home, used as an office for phosphate mining operations (mining became an important American venture as the California Gold Rush began during Polk’s last year as President), and turned into Columbia Business College, conducted by Mr. and Mrs. James Stoltz. The James K. Polk Memorial Association purchased the property from the Stoltz family in January, 2006.
