Summer Sunday DEW House Tours

Our Summer Sunday tour season is off and running! Please plan to stop by and learn how this property's history reflected the economic, agricultural and political evolution of our region, state and nation.

The next set of tours will be on 22 September, and 20 October, every hour on the hour, from 1 to 4 p.m. Free admission, but we accept donations.

 Thank You!!!!

Thank you to Ellis and Orissa Reed for the hours they spent sprucing up the flower beds around the DEW House last week! Eleven-year-old Ellis worked on this as part of her Cadette Troop's outdoor journey requirement.
