 A simple invention in an old barn put DeKalb on the map. Today, Glidden Homestead is digging into that barn's deeper history to give a full picture of Joseph Glidden's historic invention. Join the Homestead's executive director, Rob Glover, for the 2017 update on this exciting archaeology project.
