What is it?

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 different barn locations. Be aware that this is an outdoor activity that may involve walking on uneven ground. 

Admission is $40 per vehicle (buses extra).
