“Interesting Place To Visit”

Ellwood House Museum
Ranked #2 of 13 things to do in DeKalb
Attraction details
Reviewed November 28, 2013

Traveled back to DeKalb to visit family and had always passed this museum but never stopped. Actually took a tour from the staff. Beautiful grounds, lots to learn about the local history. Information on barbed wire and how it changed the west was very interesting.
Lots of information on the town's founding father's.

Thank Terry S

Great local house museum in DeKalb. Interesting local history. I have also led field trips here, and they have a great educational program.

The home is beautiful! The background of the invention of "Barbed Wire" is fascinating! At the time, it was the single most important invention that "tamed the West".

Take a guided tour, our guide was well versed in the history of the area and interesting architectural features of the home. Great way to get a feel for the development of the area

The guided tour was interesting and entertaining. There is so much to see. I can't wait for a return visit. This is an amazing resource in Dekalb. I only wish the textiles were available to tour at the time.
