DeKALB – Children of all ages are invited to the Ellwood House Museum at 11 a.m. Tuesday to hear the reading of “Goliath: Hero of the Great Baltimore Fire.”
Learn how Percheron horses, like those raised by the Ellwoods at their “Ellwood Green” farm, helped people work without automobiles. Children and their guardians will gather in the living room of the 1899 Ellwood-Nehring House to hear the story read aloud. Related crafts and snacks will follow.
The program is free to attend. Participants must be accompanied by a parent, grandparent or guardian.
The Ellwood House Museum is located at 509 N. First St. in DeKalb. For information, contact Audrey Hale at 815-756-4609 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
This program is the second of six summer events offered through Ellwood Explorers, the museum’s youth education program.
