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 levels of the 1879 mansion.

Visitors may purchase tickets in the Visitor Center (or online) and present their tickets at the front door of the house. Upon entering the decorated mansion, guests will visit each room, where volunteers will be stationed to share the history of the home.

If you cannot attend the three-day event, guided tours of the decorated mansion are available from November 15 through November 29. Please see for the guided tour schedule.
