What locals are saying

Once called "Barb City," the pleasant college town Dekalb, IL was the home of Joseph F. Glidden, a lumber salesman who came up with our modern version of barbed wire in 1874.

If you miss the college life, or never experienced it, you don’t need to live in a dorm with a snoring roommate to experience the best of it
