The restored historic Belvedere Mansion overlooks the Galena River.

 

This historic home appears to be decked out in red, white, and blue bunting for the arrival of a VIP.

 

A “painted Lady” and historic church overlook downtown Galena.

 

This restored commercial building now welcomes modern visitors.

The Galena Museum is in a restored historic home on the hill above the town.  An old mine shaft under the building allows visitors to the museum to get a look underground.

 

An exhibit describes the methods used to mine lead and zinc in the Driftless Area of Illinois, Iowa, and Wisconsin.

 

Another exhibit illustrates the tools used by the lead and zinc miners.

The famous painting of Lee’s surrender to Grant at Appomattox is the focal point of an extensive exhibit on the Civil War.
