Glidden barn to open
DeKALB – From noon to 4 p.m. Sunday, May 19, the Joseph F. Glidden Homestead and Historical Center’s Spring Open House-Open Barn will give visitors their one chance all year to see the inside of the historic barn where “The Winner” barbed wire was invented and first manufactured.
The large brick structure is located on the Homestead property, 921 W. Lincoln Highway in DeKalb, behind Burger King and next to Glidden Florist. The Phineas Vaughan Blacksmith Shop at the Glidden Homestead also will be open and operating that day.
Roger Keys, a historic preservationist who has done much work on the Homestead house and barn, will help give tours.
