A 2-story brick home with over 2,700 square feet and a panoramic view of Galena.
Built in 1856 by Asa Haile, a licensed riverboat captain and successful mason, this classic Federal-style brick home with Greek Revival accents is located up on Quality Hill, where mansions overlook the entire historic district of Galena. A quick 5-minute walk (maybe a bit longer on the way back up) puts you directly on Galena’s Main Street, named “One of America’s best Main Streets” by Fodor’s.
The front porch is the key to your stay at Asa Haile House. The view is fantastic, whether with a cup of coffee watching the town wake up or an evening sunset out towards Horseshoe Mound. Some evenings light beams can be seen over by Pilot Knob as a barge searches its way up the Mississippi River. No matter what the season; spring, summer, fall or winter, the porch is awesome!
Inside the house is a culmination of love and dedication as Pete & Tacie Campbell took ownership of the property in the early 1970s. Their influence can be enjoyed throughout the house as both were historians.
