Spend A Night In This Illinois Victorian Fever Dream
The Galena area is known for its old school charm. but at the Galena Inn (formerly Victorian Mansion) you can go all the way back to Victorian times.
This mansion was built in the 1850s and has housed many famous guests including President Grant.
I feel bad for whoever is in charge of dusting this place. They must really cycle through the feather dusters.
Galena is already an incredibly romantic town, turn it up a little bit with a trip back in time.
You can spend time in their garden reading, or just watching the time pass by in a beautiful surrounding.
The building might be old, but it has been recently renovated, but still kept its Victorian charm. Everything in this mansion is curated to reflect the time of the building.
Rooms come fully furnished and even include a hot tub to really up the romantic angle.
The mansion is located only blocks from the bustling and vibrant downtown Galena where you can enjoy excellent shopping and cozy restaurants.
Don't forget about the Galena Inn when you want to experience a romantic trip back in time.
