Annual Tour of Homes

September 30, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 9:00am, repeating until September 30, 2018

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. We’re asking a lot, we know. Yet 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.

Advance tickets are available for $18 if ordered by Sept. 15. Tickets can be purchased the day of the tour at any of the five featured houses, the Galena & U.S. Grant Museum, Gateway to History on Main Street, or at the DeSoto House Hotel.

For more information please call the Historical Society at 815-777-9129
