About the Event
This is the first of two volunteer training sessions offered at the Ellwood House Museum.

During this two-hour session, learn about the history of the Ellwood family, and how the seemingly simple invention of barbed wire in the 1870s led to immense wealth for a few families, the development of DeKalb, and the expansion of people westward in the United States.

Find out what volunteer opportunities are available (from helping with programs for kids and families to leading guided tours, to working with collections and staffing the front desk), and learn a few tips & tricks for interacting with audiences of different sizes and interests.

At this training session, you will also receive a binder with supplementary study materials, tour outlines, and other information.
