DeKalb County Barn Tour

The 2019 Barn Tour will be in Victor Township, located at the mid-point on the southern county line of DeKalb County.  The tour includes eight barns of various architectural styles. Many have livestock. All have interesting histories.

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

Admission is $25 per vehicle (buses extra) (museum members receive a $5 discount).
