Doors Open: Old Market House State Historic Site

This event has passed.


Home to the largest collection of Ulysses S. Grant memorabilia in the world. It also happens to be the Galena Area Visitors Center.

Constructed in 1845-1846, this was the focal point of community life during Galena’s heyday. The Greek revival Old Market House sheltered vendors and shoppers, who gathered in the heart of the river city’s business district until 1910. Ownership of the building was transferred to the State of Illinois in 1947, and the Old Market House was restored in 1955. Today the Old Market House State Historic Site is managed by the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency and is the scene of many changing exhibits, meetings and special events.
