“Soup-er” Tuesdays at Glidden Homestead will offer warm soup and tours of the homestead and museum from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., beginning Jan. 17.

The homestead’s season typically ended by December and started again in May.

But this year the Glidden Homestead and Historical Center will remain open through the winter for tours of the National Historical Site where Joseph Glidden and his family lived when he created his most famous invention, barbed wire.

The 2017 theme is “Digging In” and will highlight the continued restoration of the interior of the 1870s brick barn, the results of the archaeological dig of the barn’s floor, the restoration of the homestead’s heritage gardens, and the 1917 entry of the American Expeditionary Force into the trenches of WWI.

The Glidden Homestead is at 921 W. Lincoln Highway in DeKalb.
