Exploring Jacob Haish

April 7 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

FREE

DeKalb, Illinois is famous for barbed wire – but how much do you know about the people who invented it?

Jessi Haish Larue, a Haish family descendant, will present and discuss “new” artifacts and research related to this lesser-known barbed wire entrepreneur. LaRue has been researching in the Joiner History Room since fall 2021 in an effort to make Haish-related items more accessible to the public and creating conversation regarding Haish’s impact.
