The Galena Tour

You will be traveling on an authentic 1940’s San Francisco style trolley on wheels. This one hour trolley tour will take you through the historic district which straddles the east and west side of the Galena River, once a port to over 14 riverboats as they waited to check into the customs house. Today the river is a mere trickle of what it once was and we’ll tell you how and why this happened. The tour will view many of Galena’s most prominent and spectacular buildings and homes.

Some of the features of your Galena IL Trolley Tour include:

  • The Galena Post Office
