Rich in history and elegance,
The Victorian Mansion is
Galena's Premier Bed & Breakfast
Built in 1856 by Augustus Estey, a wealthy banker and lead smelter, this Victorian Estate has been authentically furnished and restored.
The elegant Italianate style Mansion sits on over 1 1/2 acres where its doors were often opened for entertaining Galena’s most prominent citizens, including America’s 18th President, Ulysses S. Grant. It was from our balcony, during his farewell party hosted by Augustus Estey that Grant’s departing speech was delivered to the citizens of Galena.
