Lots of history here and the building is historical. The guide we had was very knowledgeable about everything in the house and pointed things out quite often with lots to say about it. A great place to go to learn some things and check out the inside of the property.

Oldest house in Galena. Six people in our tour group. Social distanced maintained. Guide wore mask. Bought a joint ticket for $20 for Dowling House and Belvidere House. At this location, you need to pay cash or else, they will add on 4%. Small gift shop. Guide gave an interesting tour. It appears that they give tours as people arrive and not a stated time. Photos allowed.
