Harrison Center to unveils New Polklore Micro-Museum in revitalized former stables

As it always does, the Harrison Center is continuing its support and promotion of its surrounding environment – this time with the opening of a space dedicated to telling that neighborhood’s story.

The space, the Polklore Micro-Museum, will be located in the new COhatch Polk Stables, a three-story brick industrial building dating to 1888. It was once the mule stables for the Polk Sanitary Milk Co.

The Harrison Center Polklore Micro-Museum will be open to the public in the lower level of COhatch Polk Stables to honor the neighborhood’s story. The museum will feature stories and artifacts donated by Polk neighbors that will be interpreted through augmented reality technology. At the heart of the museum narrative lies the story of the innovative Polk Dairy and the neighbors who lived around it. Polklore will also feature a Polk Fellowship.

The COhatch Polk Stables will feature 22,000 square feet of 48 private offices and 75+ coworking seats to the community. The site will also feature an 80-person event space for any social gathering or networking event.

The grand opening of both the COhatch Polk Stables and the Harrison Center Polklore Micro-Museum is set for 3 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, June 5.
