The story of the Ellwood House reflects the central role of Isaac Ellwood in the development of the barbed wire industry in America. The magnificent estate is also a testimony to three generations of the Ellwood family whose tastes shaped the evolution of the house and grounds. As you visit Ellwood House you will be aware of the comfort and quality of workmanship that wealth could provide. At the same time, you also sense the warmth and hospitality of a family home that was lived in for almost one hundred years.
December 7th, 8th & 9th will be the weekend Holiday Open House. Tickets are $10.00 for adults and $3.00 for children. The Ellwood House is located at 509 North First Street, in DeKalb. Visit their website now here: www.ellwoodhouse.org.
