In celebration of Flag Day (June 14th), The Commonwealth Museum will display one of the oldest 13-stars-and-stripes American flag. It’s so old, in fact, the flag is believed to have been raised during the Revolutionary War at Fort Independence on Castle Island.

According to the Boston Globe, the flag was discovered inside a family home in Medford in 1901.   The flag is part of the Commonwealth Museum’s exhibit about Castle Island and the American Revolution.  It has only been on public display a few times!

The Commonwealth Museum is located at 220 Morrissey Blvd.
