The Ellwood House Ice Cream Social is this Sunday, August 5th, from 2pm-4pm. Come out to DeKalb’s historic Ellwood House for free family activities featuring the DeKalb Municipal Band free concert on the terrace. Frozen Custard by Culver’s will be offered for purchase as well as slices of pie and cake. Mansion tours will be available for $8.00 for adults, and $3.00 for youth. If you haven’t taken the tour or haven’t brought the kids through yet, this tour is something everyone in the area should do at least once.
