The theme for the DeKalb County History Center’s 2019 Pumpkin Fest Historic Homes Tour is “The Heart of Sycamore.”
To see a sneak preview of the homes, learn about their fascinating stories, join Steve Bigolin as part of the Oct. 3 Brown Bag Lunch/Local Lore Series.
Some of the locations that will be showcased on this year’s tour are 319 Somonauk St., 328 Somonauk St., 420 Somonauk St., 464 Somonauk St., 813 Somonauk St., and 101 Mason Court. These locations will be open for everyone to enjoy on Saturday, Oct. 26.
Information about volunteering for the tour will also be discussed. Volunteers earn a free ticket to the event if they work a 2-hour shift, and training is provided. Tickets cost $25 for one, and $40 for a pair and will be available by Oct. 19.
The Brown Bag/Local Lore program is held on the first Thursday of the month and is co-sponsored by the Ellwood House. The Oct. 3 program will be held at noon at the DeKalb County History Center, 1730 N. Main St. Coffee and cookies will be provided. There is no charge, but donations are welcome.
