Tour of Historic Galena Homes

September 29 - September 30

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.

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

Tickets for the Tour of Historic Galena Homes are on sale now! Tickets purchased on or before September 15 are priced at $18 per person. After September 15, tickets are $20 per person. Children under 10 are free with an adult.

You can purchase tickets by phone by calling 815-777-9129, in person at the museum or the Gateway to History store on Main Street in Galena, or on the day of the event at any of the homes on the tour.
