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 place has both interesting cultural and architectural elements. We really learned alot about how folks lived back in the 1800s...no wonder they died so young!!!
If we disliked anything, it was the lack of authentic items in the lower level but that cannot be helped...common use fabrics and dishes do not last hundreds of years.
Thanks to the delightful guide! Give her a great tip for the tour and her daily exposure to lead.
After paying $7/persons I was a bit worried. The house is small, and there's not a whole lot to see. We waited for our guide, and entered. I have seen much more interesting and larger house for less money--but in Galena everything seems to be higher priced. After the 30 minute tour I did learn quite a bit about the house and little tidbits.
If you are a history buff--you will enjoy this. For children--find something else.
