Interpretive signage for the historic barn at the J.F. Glidden Homestead & Historical Center in DeKalb will become a reality thanks to a grant from the DeKalb County Community Foundation. Funding for site signage includes a front yard sign, for which Homestead blacksmiths are forging an 8-foot wide scrolled frame, and a directional entrance sign, along with the identifying sign at the barn where Glidden first manufactured his barbed wire. Anita Zurbrugg (middle), program director at DCCF, presented a check to Homestead executive director Marcia Wilson and board member Jeff Marshall during the Homestead’s Patent Day celebration on November 4.
