Once a month, a knowledgeable speaker will present an hour-long program about history relevant to DeKalb County. All programs are free of charge and take place in the Ellwood House Museum Visitor Center unless otherwise stated.

This month’s meeting is about DeKalb’s Historic Cemeteries. Just in time for Halloween, local historian Steve Bigolin will share his knowledge of the DeKalb cemeteries, including Oakwood, Pleasant Street, Evergreen, St. Mary’s, and Fairview. Join them for this fascinating lecture about the history and preservation of these landmarks. All participants are encouraged to bring a sack lunch. The event starts at noon but doors open at 11:30am.
