You almost never see Main Street in Galena without cars! But at 7 in the morning, almost nothing’s open yet…

Galena, situated at the farthest northwest corner on the state of Illinois adjacent to Wisconsin and Iowa, is a popular spot with tourists and nearby residents alike. Founded in 1828, it has a long history both as a mining town (“galena” refers to tailings from the lead mines) and a major steamboat port. Ulysses S. Grant made his home here (you can tour his house, today); and many people of historical renoun have passed through its hotels and streets; Mark Twain and Abe Lincoln, to name two.

Most of the buildings on Main Street, like most of the older homes date from the mid-1800’s and are on the list of Registered Historic Buildings. Main Street wasn’t built for cars, so it’s a rare treat to see it “almost” like it used to be, as pictured here.
