Ellwood Explorers: Lunch at the Little House
Saturday, June 8, 2019
This June, join the Ellwood House Museum in celebrating 125 years of fun in the 1891 Little House.
In 1894, after seeing it as a parade float advertisement for Patten Mfg. Company, William Leonard Ellwood purchased the miniature home as a playhouse for his two daughters, Jean and Elise. Today, the Little House is a classic DeKalb landmark – sparking imagination, inviting wonder, and serving as the backdrop for countless family photos.
On Saturday, June 8, the Ellwood House Museum will present “Lunch at the Little House,” a free program for kids and families of all ages.
From 11am until noon, bring your own picnic lunch to enjoy on the grounds of Ellwood Park. The Little House will be open for free play, along with modern reproductions of antique games like hopscotch, yo-yos, and croquet on the lawn. Participants will also be able to try out making and tasting their own hand-churned ice cream.
“Lunch at the Little House” is the second of eight monthly programs as part of Ellwood Explorers, the Ellwood House Museum’s youth educational series. Programs are free of charge, last approximately one hour, and will be relocated indoors in case of inclement weather.
All ages are welcome, registration is required. For more information or to register to attend, please visit ellwoodhouse.org/learn or call (815) 756-4609.
Ellwood Explorers is generously supported by the Cy Miller Foundation. The museum is located at 509 N. First Street in DeKalb.
