The Galena-Jo Daviess County Historical Society will host its 52nd Annual Tour of Historic Galena Homes Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 28 and 29. Nancy Breed, Executive Director, says each year, selected owners of Galena’s rich assortment of historic structures volunteer to open their doors for public tours. This year’s features a few homes that have been included in the past and a pair of first timers. The tour can last several hours if you choose to visit them all. Tickets can be purchased the day of the tour for 20-dollars at the Old Train Depot, the Galena & U.S. Grant Museum, Gateway to History on Main Street, or at the DeSoto House Hotel. Free shuttles will be provided (Saturday only) to all tour locations. Otherwise, street parking can be found near each of the homes. All proceeds benefit the Galena-Jo Daviess County Historical Society. Visit galenahistory.org and click on events for information and tickets.
