I have to share a town with you that is really one of my very favorites!



Growing up in Illinois we would often make the hour drive to Galena to enjoy the beautiful drive and store after store of antiques.



I loved those Sunday drives and I also think all those days in antique stores really set a foundation in me to love those things that are rare and old.


When Kelly and I got married we didn't have a lot of extra vacation time so we even spent our honeymoon here.

We stayed at different Bed and Breakfasts, shopped, ate good food and truly enjoyed our first few days as a married couple.

Even now…I can not go home without taking the drive to Galena.

The town may not have as many antique stores as it used to, but this is a quaint and lovely town filled with history.


I always dream of buying a home here and making Galena the town that we raise our children.

This is only a dream because my husband could never get a job….minor detail.

We would only be 45 minutes away from my parents and the farm the children love so much.

Here is a peek at the homes I found.

The prices will shock you! 

 At least in my neck of the woods…you couldn't even buy a townhouse for the price of some of these historic homes.

















This is the view that comes with the above house!





I know you are packing your bags right now!
