Our tour is not a ghost-hunting tour. We do not use ghost-hunting devices, but instead walk along the streets of Old Galena with the ghosts beside us. We encourage our guests to take a lot of pictures with their cameras. Our guests have found profound images of ghostly figures on our tour: a man dressed in a black frock coat and pants that were popular in the 1830s, a woman on a second–floor balcony who is dressed in a beautiful shirtwaist, her hair up in a bun, looking down at something in her hands, to name just a couple. One night the candle in our lantern (candles that usually last through two to three 90-minute tours) melted down to nothing in a matter of minutes as we told the story of a famous murder in Galena. It has never happened before or since.
Spirits of all kinds thrive in Galena, both in the autumn and all year round. Explore the area anytime for delicious beverages and ghostly experiences that are sure to leave you with the desire to experience it again and again.
