This unique flag pole is believed to have belonged to a family of German immigrants fleeing the Prussian war in the middle of the 19th century. The pole is of wooden construction mainly, with small brass nameplates decorating the length. At the top, we can clearly see the name "Anna Schweigler - Fahrenpatin", which directly translates to "driving godmother". This was likely her flag pole during the trip over and eventual immigration to the United States.

The pole bears a brass eagle at the top that is in fine condition. The pole measures 65" in total length.
