I strongly suggest that everyone interested in this particular tour, reconsider and seek an alternate tour provider. The tour does a poor job highlighting Galena's history and does not remotely discuss Ghosts. At the price of $10 per person, the tour is not worth the money. The first 45 minutes of the tour consisted of a several terrible jokes, a "ghost" story that was de-bunked as a refelction, and that several scenes in "Field of Dreams" was filmed in Town. Hardly, what I would consider as a Ghost Walk. Considering the lengthy past of Galena and the tremendous amount of history available to draw stories from, this tour truly misses the mark. My group and I were extremely dissapointed and wished our money had been used on a different tour.
Built in 1826, this is the oldest home in Galena. The home is built of native limestone and served as
both a trading post, and a residence. It is furnished with primitives, and a collection of Galena pottery.
This 22 room, Italianate mansion was built in 1857, for the Ambassador to Belgium. The home is furnished with Victorian
pieces, items from Liberace's estate, and the green drapes from \"Gone With The Wind.\"
