waterman red barn.jpg


The DeKalb County Barn Tour is a one-day driving tour of barn sites within DeKalb County hosted by the DeKalb Area Agricultural Heritage Association, Inc. and the JF Glidden Homestead & Historical Center. Participants will receive a map guide book containing hand-drawn sketches of each barn as well as the barn's history, style and use. Participants drive to each location in any order for a tour of the barn(s), including many interiors. Purchase your event ticket at any of the eight locations. Be aware that this is an outdoor activity that may involve walking on uneven ground.

Please download the PDF from the DAAHA website for the map of all the barn locations. The starting point is mainly the Waterman Parking lot on Rt 30 but folks can actually start at any of the barns. Purchase a $25 illustrated Barn Tour Booklet and that is your ticket for a car full to stop at any and all the locations. https://www.daaha.org/barn-tour on Sunday, August 12, 2017 from 9-4:00 p.m.

EIS Scoping Report - Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation


2.1 PURPOSE AND NEED (as of April 2016)

The purpose and need for the Proposed Action is to improve the Nation’s short-term and long-term economic condition and promote its self-sufficiency, and to confirm the trust status of the Shab-Eh-Nay reservation, which was sold by the 1849 U.S. General Land Office without Congressional authorization. Revenues from the operation of the project would improve the socioeconomic status of the Nation by providing revenues that would be used to:

Increase funding available for a variety of governmental programs and services, including, but not limited to, construction management and building maintenance; road maintenance;
emergency services; law enforcement; fire prevention; court operations; early childhood
development programs; social services (including child and family services, vocational
rehabilitation, adult services, and community health services); health services; and tribal housing;
 Hire additional staff for tribal programs, and train tribal employees;
 Upgrade equipment and facilities, and improve operations;
 Repair, upgrade, and replace equipment and facilities;
 Expand and improve tribal services; and
 Address infrastructure and housing needs.

Each of these purposes is consistent with the limited allowable uses for gaming revenues, as required by Indian Gaming Regulatory Act (IGRA; 25 U.S.C. § 2710(b)(2)(A)). The project would also provide employment opportunities for tribal members as well as local non-tribal residents. Additionally, operation of the gaming facility and related facilities on trust land would require the purchase of goods and services, increasing opportunities for local businesses, further stimulating the local economy.
