Activities

Spooky Glen Ellyn Driving Tour --

​In October of 2020, the Historical Society offered a driving tour of some spooky sites in Glen Ellyn. Even though it was designed for Halloween, you can drive the tour any day of the year! The entire tour is on video. Just go behind Stacy's Tavern Museum at 557 Geneva Rd. to begin. The video tour will tell you when to pause the video, and where to drive next. The video itself is about a half hour long, and the entire tour takes about an hour to complete (driving and optional walking included). You can find the video on YouTube by clicking here: 

Scavenger Hunt --

​Looking for a fun activity the whole family can enjoy? Click the blue Scavenger Hunt button and download a pdf of our Downtown Glen Ellyn Scavenger Hunt. Then print it out!

You can take a walk downtown and check the different landmarks off the list. You will notice things about Glen Ellyn you have never seen before!

The entire hunt will take 45 minutes to 1 hour to complete. Walk at your own pace! All instructions are included.

When you are done, if you like, you can bring the completed scavenger hunt to Stacy's Corners Store, the gift shop at the Glen Ellyn History Center at 800 N. Main St. There, you will be given a Stacy's Tavern Museum button to show that you completed the scavenger hunt.

Have trouble printing it out? We have copies of the printed scavenger hunt available for free in our History Center lobby at 800 N. Main St., open 10 - 4, Tuesday through Saturday.

This is a great mystery for detectives of all ages! Enjoy!
