Nathan Hale Chapter promoted patriotism and education when providing a 30-foot flagpole for the newly built Merriam Park Library in Saint Paul. The chapter dedicated the flagpole on September 22, 1931, the 155th anniversary of the death of Nathan Hale.

When the Merriam Park Library was rebuilt in 1993, the flagpole was replaced.
