Ellwood House Museum to recreate early garden
DeKALB – The Ellwood House Museum plans to recreate a garden May Ellwood tended more than 100 years ago at the Ellwood-Nehring House.
That will be possible thanks to a donation from William and Patsy Lundberg, who have been involved with the Ellwood House Association for years, said Brian Reis, the museum’s executive director. Reis said
Lundberg’s grandfather worked for the Ellwood family for years.
Reis declined to say how much the Lundbergs donated or how much restoring the garden – located south of the Ellwood-Nehring House, behind the carriage building – would cost. The 1899 Tudor home at 417 N. First St. in DeKalb once was owned by the son of the famous barbed-wire entrepreneur Isaac Ellwood. It was donated to the adjacent museum last year.
