Library Journal - Library Journal
Garrison Keillor no doubt loves Galena, Illinois, ``the town that time forgot.'' So did Ulysses S. Grant, who made it his home in 1860. So do 1.5 million annual visitors, who've made it the state's third most popular attraction. Sixty-three historic buildings, antique shops, a market house, and excellent restaurants line its main streets. Zahn's guidebook is a ``helping hand'' for visitors who want to savor this Mississippi town's 19th-century heritage by staying at a historic inn or bed and breakfast. An entertaining narrative and black-and-white photos describe 41 properties, each of which Zahn has personally inspected. The author of two other Room at the Inn books ( Wisconsin and Minnesota ), Zahn conveys the story behind each innkeeper's purchase and restoration of these historic gems. For regional collections.-- Lisa Mullenneaux, Iowa City
