Galena, IL, nestled in the bluffs of the Mississippi River in northwest Illinois, is one of the most historic communities in the region. The townspeople take pride in the rich history of their town, dedicating their time to restoration projects and the booming industry of heritage tourism. In this book you will meet the town's pioneer residents, stroll the historic business district, and discover the unique architecture of Galena. Many of the images (c. 1826-1940s) in the book come from the Galena/Jo Daviess Historical Museum (which is sponsoring the project), the Alfred Mueller collection, the Illinois Historic Sites Office, and private collections.
