The Glidden Campus Florist in DeKalb


The Glidden Campus Florist in DeKalbThe business was started in 1936 by Mabel Glidden from the humble beginnings of a flower cart filled with fresh cut flowers from her garden. As times fared better, the business moved into the garage of the Glidden Homestead (now under historical preservation). As the business expanded, the Glidden family began adding greenhouses and a flower shop. Growth was steady, and in 1962 Wenke Hansen, a native of Norway, started working for the Glidden family. She developed a reputation for her European quality of design in fresh flowers and home decor. The business continued to grow in size and volume while retaining the objective of providing the highest quality in flowers and service. In 1978, the Hansen family purchased the business, and the final addition was added to the store: a beautiful room featuring a 30-ft gabled ceiling. People now love to stop at The Glidden Campus Florist just to let the beauty of the season, the flowers, the plants, and the displays put them in a good mood. Please stop by or call us today. If you are in the area or just passing through, please stop by The Glidden Campus Florist and Greenhouse!
