Appreciation, music and memories at Glidden Homestead

DeKALB – An autumn musical treat awaits you at Glidden Homestead.

On Sunday, Nov. 19, from noon to 4 p.m., will be a Glidden Homestead volunteer recognition event, honoring the recent hard work of volunteers at the National Register of Historic Places site. From 1 to 2:30 p.m. visitors of all ages can hear charming music featured in the parlor from Gretchen Sigwart, acclaimed harp player. Ice cream sundaes will be served at that time as well.

“We hold a volunteer recognition event as a way to say 'thank you' because volunteers help drive what we do throughout the year,” Rob Glover, executive director of the Glidden Homestead, said in a news release. “This year, we’ve added a special charter member event because the charter members have similarly driven Glidden Homestead’s accomplishments from the very beginning.”

Visitors can tour the Joseph Glidden’s Home where barbed wire was invented, see a working blacksmith shop, and visit the 1870s brick barn currently being excavated.

The Glidden Homestead, at 921 W. Lincoln Highway, is open Tuesdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. or by special arrangement. Admission is $4 per adult and free for children younger than 14.
