52nd Annual Tour of Historic Homes

Share '52nd Annual Tour of Historic Homes'

It’s a labor of love, really… this business of asking owners of Galena’s rich cache of historic buildings to open their homes to the public for an entire weekend. Every year, roughly a half dozen properties are, indeed, offered up for touring, giving lovers of history, quality American workmanship and even quirky ingenuity the opportunity to see why Galena’s 19th Century architecture and interiors are second to none.

Proceeds from the Annual Tour of Historic Galena Homes benefits the Galena-Jo Daviess County Historical Society. Free shuttle.
