DeKalb County Barn Tour

2019 DeKalb County Barn Tour

The barn tour 2019 will be in Victor Township which is at the mid-point of the southern county line for DeKalb County!

This year the tour is August 10, 2019 from 9am-4pm. Maps will be posted as soon as they are available.

The DeKalb County Barn Tour is a one-day driving tour of barn sites within DeKalb County hosted by the DeKalb Area Agricultural Heritage Association, Inc. and the JF Glidden Homestead & Historical Center. Participants will receive a map and guide book containing hand-drawn sketches of each barn as well as the barn’s history, style and use. For an additional price, five-year anniversary books will be available. Participants drive to each location in any order for a tour of the barn(s). Purchase your event ticket at any of the eight locations. Be aware that this is an outdoor activity that may involve walking on uneven ground.  Admission is $25 per vehicle (buses extra) (museum members receive a $5 discount).


DCCG is bringing the Grow-Mobile to Waterman on May 14th from 4-6pm.
