Share HOLIDAY TRADITIONS

Event Details

Kick off your holiday season with a tour of the elegantly decorated Ellwood House in DeKalb. View the historic home of barbed-wire baron Isaac Ellwood in a new light, and enjoy live music and festive decorations on four floors of the 1879 mansion. 

Visitors may purchase tickets in the Visitor Center (or online) and present their tickets at the front door of the mansion. Upon entering the decorated mansion, guests will visit each room, where volunteers will be stationed to present the history of the Ellwood House and share information about the three generations of Ellwood family members who called Ellwood House home.

*If you cannot attend the three-day event, we do offer guided tours of the decorated mansion from Nov. 15 through Nov. 30 at 1 pm and 3 pm. Call 815-756-4609 to schedule a tour. We are closed on Mondays and Thanksgiving day. Photography is not allowed in the mansion.
