Reenactments in Galena and Jo Daviess County

Seeing someone walk around in 19th century garb will make you do a double take. But when they totally commit to their characters, you get a unique glimpse of what life was like during a different time. Go talk with the women at Apple River Fort and see how their day was spent. Tour Galena’s Old Blacksmith Shop. And join period interpreters on a journey through the fine Victorian home of Charles Banwarth in Elizabeth. It’s an experience like none other.
