    Description

    Historic Galena, Illinois never ceases to provide interesting stories and viewpoints from a time period when horse-drawn buggies, lead-mining, and railways were the way of life. This Italianate-styled frame house and farmette were once the center of nearly 300 acres of fruit trees, home to a self-made former supervisor of the town of Rice and his family, and a lasting representation of the early days of Galena. When entering this historic home from the side entrance, you will be welcomed into the family kitchen large enough to host a casual gathering of friends and family without the need for Sunday dress. From the kitchen, you have entry to a butler's pantry and additional prep area, a full bathroom, a bright, glass-enclosed "den in the garden," and the main hallway with an inviting and open oak staircase. Down the hall and toward the front of the house sits a formal parlor with recently built-in bookcases and historic center chandelier. Just across the hall is a large dining room for formal entertaining or for reminiscing over a meal of days gone by. Through the original front doors (and 19th century turnkey doorbell) is a screened-in porch (added in 2019) on which you can sip your morning coffee, share a glass of tea, or toast the sunset. Climbing the narrow, yet open, oak staircase brings you to a large open room perfect as an additional large bedroom suite or upstairs parlor with additional access to the kitchen down a smaller, less ornate set of stairs. Just down the hall you will find an additional full bathroom with an attached small bedroom and larger bedroom just across the hall. With over 24 acres, seven of which are currently agricultural, a deep-well drilled in 2012, a 15' x 30' metal pole barn built in 2011, a new high efficiency furnace, two new sump pumps, and a host of other improvements made since 2004, this beautiful historic homesite could be your own escape into a time before (with modern conveniences)! Downtown Galena, where nearly 85% of the buildings are on the National Register of Historic Places, is found seven miles down Blackjack Rd, formerly the main thoroughfare from Chicago to this bustling mining town. The Goldmoor Inn and Chestnut Mountain, with its ski slopes, alpine slide, hiking, and more are just over a mile away! Even the ever-popular and always-busy General Golf Course, Galena Territory, and Eagle Ridge Resort & Spa are a mere 20 minutes away! Find yourself in the Driftless Region, where time stands still; make this historic property a part of YOUR history today! *Additional photos and aerial footage coming soon!
