About Our Family
Nestled in the rolling hills along a Mississippi tributary in Northwestern Illinois, Galena captivates visitors with its rich history, delicious food, dazzling artistic scene but most of all, the warmth of its locals. Toast a drink with friends while you eat hot bread pudding and listen to old stories about Ulysses S. Grant, the 18th President of the United States who palled around with Mark Twain here in the late 1800s. The Shurley family maintains this website and enjoys showcasing Galena and sharing through food & adventure the magic of the historic place we fell in love with. "We hope you have a wonderful time here."
