Fodor's Review

Sit back and relax as you roll past historic sites and architectural splendor. Discover how Galena boomed as a lead-mining town, fell into economic depression and turned itself around and into the charming getaway it is now. A 1-hour tour makes the most of your time, while the 2-1/2 tour stops for 30 to 45 minutes at the Belvedere Mansion, the Dowling House and the Ulysses S. Grant Home.
