These services are open to Emory Grove residents as well as the public. Even though Emory Grove is not always open to the public, you should really take advantage of the opportunities for visitors to come and explore this wonderful historic treasure. Along with the Sunday services and Wednesday hymns, there is an Independence Day celebration at Emory Grove on July 4 that includes a morning sunrise service, a parade, a celebration and games. On July 27, there is a genealogy seminar and on Aug. 1, an afternoon tea at the hotel will be held. For more information about Emory Grove and public events held there, you can visit emorygrove.homestead.com. I hope you will get to visit this wonderful historic natural gem in Glyndon and get swept back in time by its historical charm.
